Labor Law

Labor Law is a sub-field of Employment Law that addresses the employment relationship in a unionized workforce, including the rights of employers and of organized union workers employed under group employment contracts known as collective bargaining agreements.

Some examples of Labor Law issues include union elections; collective bargaining over hours, wages, terms and conditions of employment; interest (economic) arbitration; grievance (contract compliance) arbitration; unfair labor practices; strikes, lock-outs, picketing, secondary boycotts and other job actions; strike-busting and the use of temporary workers.

Harrison Law Offices also prosecutes the rights of union employees in unfair labor practice cases where union officials breach the union’s duty to fairly represent their members.  Most often, these cases arise when unions, for improper purposes and with bad motives, fail to defend union members in disciplinary or termination cases.
