Since the firm’s founding in the 1930s the prime focus of our practice has been the representation of Unions in the public and private sectors. The primary Unions represented by the firm are local unions affiliated with Joint Council 7 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, SAG-AFTRA, the California Teachers Association, the Media Workers Guild, the Office & Professional Employees International Union, and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).
We regularly deal with any and all issues confronting labor unions, including labor arbitration, contract negotiations and enforcement, organizing, picketing and strike-related issues, and election and unfair labor practice proceedings before administrative agencies and in the courts. We are also expert in all aspects of Union internal governance and administration, including issues around dues (and the agency fee payer requirements of the Supreme Court’s Beck and Hudson cases), Landrum-Griffin obligations, and Department of Labor regulation of Unions.
