        Creates the Illinois Labor  Equity  Act.   Prohibits  the  State,      
   units  of  local  government   and school districts from entering into      
   contracts with, making loans or grants to, surveying lands  on  behalf      
   of,  or purchasing the securities of any employer which has offered or      
   granted  the  status  of  a  permanent  replacement  employee  to   an

   a  labor  dispute.  Amends  the  Advertisement for Strike Workers Act.

   Strike  Workers  Act.  Provides that no public or educational employer      
   may hire permanent replacements for employees lawfully striking  under      
   the  Public  Labor  Relations  Act or Educational Labor Relations Act.      
   Provides that a court may grant injunctive  relief  to  enforce  those      
   provisions.   Amends the Labor Dispute Act to provide that it does not
