our impact

The IFT has a long history of successfully advocating for our members, public education, and state services. Our union has helped to secure important gains for workers in Illinois, like higher pay, better benefits, job security, the right to collectively bargain, fully funded public education and state services, a retirement we can count on, and more.

So whether or not you’re a member, unions have played an instrumental role in fighting on your behalf!
