UAW Pat Greathouse Education Center

We place a high priority on education in our Region, and we are the only UAW Region that has its own free-standing education center. Located on the banks of the Illinois river, the UAW Pat Greathouse Education Center (PGC) in Ottawa, Illinois hosts many UAW leaders and members each year. Here members learn how to be leaders and contributors in their local unions and the communities in which they live. Members learn new skills, such as collective bargaining, grievance handling, strategic planning, labor history, public speaking, community service, and political action. In addition, many conferences are held for our standing committees.
