Representation of Unions
Sachs Waldman's labor lawyers provide labor organizations, both international unions and their affiliated locals, with progressive, vigorous and effective representation on every conceivable legal matter that they may encounter. For many years our firm has served as General Counsel to the Michigan State AFL-CIO and the Metropolitan Detroit AFL-CIO. We provide advice, counseling and representation to many Michigan unions in proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and the Michigan Employment Relations Commission; in proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Michigan Department of Civil Rights; in negotiations, grievance arbitration and Act 312 (compulsory arbitration) proceedings; and in every manner of dispute before the state and federal courts. We also advise labor unions with respect to agency fees, elections, and other internal matters, including compliance with the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, the Campaign Finance Act, various tax laws, internal employment relations, and all of the other various legal issues that may confront labor organizations. In short, Sachs Waldman's labor lawyers provide labor unions with progressive, vigorous and effective legal representation.
