Margaret Angelucci is a shareholder with the firm and has been in practice since 1994.  Since then, she has represented the interests of working people in a variety of capacities.  Margaret represents labor unions and individual employees in both the public and private sectors. In the labor context, Margaret’s practice runs the full gamut of the labor-management relationship, including training union staff, union organizing drives, contract negotiations, contract enforcement, grievances, arbitrations, interest arbitrations and unfair labor practice proceedings.  Margaret has considerable experience representing firefighter unions, small and large, in communities surrounding Chicago.  Her ability to understand and connect with firemen is likely a product of her having grown up in a family of firefighters. Margaret has also represented union pension and health funds in the enforcement of collective bargaining agreements. 

In the context of representing individual employees and classes of employees, Margaret has handled a wide variety of matters arising from the employee-employer relationship, including negotiating employment agreements, severance agreements, internal investigations, covenants not to compete, overtime claims, discrimination claims, and enforcement of COBRA and ERISA rights.

In her practice, Margaret routinely appears in state and federal courts, and before the Illinois Labor Relations Board, Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board, the National Labor Relations Board, the EEOC, the Department of Labor, and various civil service boards. 

Margaret is a member of the American Bar Association. Margaret is a former Chapter Editor for the ABA’s Developing Labor Law and a former Contributing Editor for the ABA publication Discipline and Discharge in Arbitration. She is a former Union Co-Chair of the ABA's Employment Rights and Responsibility Subcommittee. Margaret frequently speaks on labor and employment law issues at the local, state and national levels.  

In 2014, Margaret was elected as a Fellow of the distinguished College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.  The College is a non-profit professional association established for the purpose of honoring leading labor and employment lawyers throughout the United States and Canada.  Its Fellows are elected by the College’s Board of Governors following an incredibly rigorous screening and peer review process.  Fellows are recognized for professional achievement that represents the very highest level of expertise, integrity and leadership in the profession.
