We are proud to represent public and private sector labor organizations in their fight for fair wages, benefits, and working conditions. We are experienced in all aspects of labor representation, including organizing campaigns, representation elections, contract negotiations, enforcing the collective bargaining agreement, and prosecuting and defending unfair labor practice charges.
Our clients include labor organizations representing a broad spectrum of workers from construction workers to police officers. Our experience includes representation before the National Labor Relations Board, the Ohio State Employment Relations Board, state and federal courts, arbitrators, and mediators.
We recognize there is not a one-size fits all solution to the problems faced by our clients. Our goal is first and foremost to accomplish our clients’ goals. We recognize every client has a unique understanding about the problem they face and sometimes preconceived notions about how to accomplish their goals. We offer smart advice on the problems which face our clients and make sound suggestions on alternative means to achieving our clients’ objectives. We aggressively represent our clients, work effectively while pursuing their goals, and work efficiently in accomplishing those goals.
We recognize and embrace the concept that fighting worker abuse is an important goal in and of itself. As the great reformer Emiliano Zapata said: “It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.” We are committed to working with our union clients to help U.S. workers learn to stand up for themselves.Contact Us
