Union Legal Services

Tully Rinckey’s team of attorneys offer unions a clear advantage in arbitrations, hearings, organizational planning and training, and dispute resolution. We fight to protect the rights of employees and the unions that represent them, advocating for satisfactory working conditions, fair treatment, and reasonable compensation.

Many employees rely on unions to advocate on their behalf for fair wages and sensible workplace policies, and to protect their rights when employers overstep or discriminate. To do so effectively and expediently, and with the full understanding of the legal implications, it’s often necessary to involve outside legal counsel.

Our attorneys are committed to not only ensuring that the rights of unions and their members are protected, but also to helping these organizations operate at peak capacity.
