Unionists on the road in Illinois might want to take advantage of the labor monuments and historic sites throughout the state too.
ILHS also encourages union to consider doing their own local union's history by gathering the important documents and photographs that tell the local's history:
- big struggles (organizing campaigns, strikes, etc.)
- social and community-building events over the years
- tools of the trade (the way the job has changed over the years
- Make an exhibit in the union hall or scan the important documents and create an on-line exhibit.
Check out your international's history too.
