The Southland Friends of Labor has relationships with various trade unions that represent the working men and women in the Southern Cook, Will and Kankakee County areas. We are looking forward to meeting and partnering with all who are concerned about the future of the Southland and the men and women who do its work. This election cycle, the Southland Friends of Labor will determine who best supports working families’ issues and merits Labor’s endorsement.
