Experienced Representation for Unions and Union Members

Our firm represents union members who file grievances against their employers for violations of the collective bargaining agreement between the union and the employer. There are several steps in involved in the grievance process, sometimes resulting in arbitration.

Some unions allow their members to have their own attorneys represent them, while others do not. Where permitted, the attorneys at Raff & Becker represent union members in all stages of the grievance process, including arbitration. If the union does not allow private representation, we can still offer union members insight on how to best use their union rights, gather the necessary evidence and approach the union representatives who are handling their cases.

Our attorneys also provide guidance on your individual rights as a union member in internal disputes. Whether handling election issues or disciplinary actions, we protect our clients' rights under the Landrum-Griffin Act, which protects the rights of individual union members against impermissible internal labor union conduct or corruption.

We also have extensive experience representing unions themselves in collective bargaining or arbitration.
