As Illinois largest Personal Injury and Workers Compensation Law Firm, GWC has had significant exposure to many of the fine efforts that the Unions in Illinois have put forth to make our state, and country, a better, safer and healthier place to live.

The purpose of this blog is to bring attention to a few of the things that the unions are involved in that are designed to help so many people in this state; and the unions are not promoting these things, they are not asking for praise or recognition, and they are not asking for any elses help. They are just doing it because it is the right thing to do for Illinois and our country. Read more
