Labor Law

Labor Law deals with the rights of employers, employees, and labor organizations. Both State and Federal labor laws guarantee employees “the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively, through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for their mutual aid or protection.” Labor Law generally addresses one of three different situations: (1) a union attempting to organize the employees of an employer and to get the employer to recognize it as the employees’ bargaining representative; (2) a union seeking to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement with an employer; or (3) a union and an employer disagreeing on the interpretation and application of an existing contract between the two.
