Union / Organized Labor Lawyers
Unions provide workers with protection from unfair hiring and labor practices. Under federal law, those who join unions or engage in collective bargaining cannot lose their jobs on the basis of that activity alone.
Once a powerful force in regulating the labor market, union membership has shrunk to just 11 percent of the U.S. workforce. Janus v. the AFSCME, a recent Supreme Court ruling, mandates that agency fees cannot be collected from non-consenting public-sector employees. The ruling threatens to erode collective bargaining power even further.
If you believe you are the victim of illegal termination or unjust treatment due to your union membership, contact Morgan & Morgan. Our union lawyers may be able to recover damages for your lost income as well as pain and suffering. We have over 30 years of experience in many practice areas and are passionate about fighting for the rights of victims across the nation.
How Can a Union Lawyer Help?
Union lawyers are specialists within the broader category of employment law. Both employers and employees retain these lawyers in labor disputes or negotiations. Also, as specialists, they can be hired as consultants to interpret the law.
More often, union lawyers deal with individuals in occupations, such as teaching or public transportation, that have a strong union presence with regulations. Union lawyers step in to represent a union member who was wrongfully terminated, perhaps as a result of collective bargaining.
You may need a union lawyer to represent you after experiencing some of the following as a union member:
- As an employer, you’re threatened with a lawsuit after employees of yours allege exposure to hazardous materials, wrongful termination, or other workplace mistreatment
- As an employer, you want to fire a union worker who has a history of unsatisfactory work performance
- As a worker, you face unlawful termination or on-the-job mistreatment, especially if it goes against union rules
- As a unionized worker or employer, you need help negotiating the terms of a strike
