Outside Counsel Legal Services

Union leaders are constantly trying to navigate the complexities of federal labor law and labor-management relations. They are often confronted with making tough decisions that could affect the employment of collective bargaining unit members, the terms of collective bargaining agreements, or the cohesiveness of the union. While some unions have in-house local or council attorneys, most do not. They may not always have staff attorneys readily available to answer pressing questions from shop stewards, elected officers, and their presidents.

That is why Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Federal Labor Law practice offers outside counsel legal services to local, regional and national unions. For 27 years, the head of our Federal Labor Law practice, Mark D. Roth, provided legal advice and opinions to all levels of union leadership as he served as the general counsel of the American Federation of Government Employees.

At Tully Rinckey PLLC, Mark and his staff are now available to provide the following outside counsel legal services:

  • Over-the-phone legal advice on any troubling issues including grievances, unfair labor practices or contractual issues
  • Explanations of the law
  • Discussions of union options
  • Assessments of grievance cases
  • Representation in grievance arbitration
  • Legal representation of officers
  • Tips on bargaining methods and strategies
  • Workshops and trainings
  • Interpretations of rules set out in Union Constitutions

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s federal labor law attorneys can represent federal sector unions and their members in arbitration anywhere in the country. Call today to schedule a meeting with one of our federal labor lawyers at 703-525-4700 or e-mail
