Firm Provides Representation of Labor Unions and Employee Associations
Los Angeles labor lawyer handles labor union matters for public sector and private sector labor unions.
Services include labor arbitration of discipline and contract interpretation cases, organizing campaigns involving election cases, challenged ballot cases, and unfair labor practices. . Mr. Manrique has represented scores of local and international labor unions and employee associations in many unionized industries.
Protecting the rights of active and prospective union members
My firm counsels board members, union stewards, labor activists and rank-and-file employees on legal matters pertaining to:
- Organizing and elections — Sometimes, a union’s toughest fight is to get certified in the first place. Frequently, business will take aggressive action to stop a union from forming. I work with unions in organizing campaigns filing petitions for certification, the election process, and handle unfair labor practice cases associated with organizing.
- Contract interpretation and enforcement — I help unions interpret and enforce contractual language so that they have a clear perspective on their rights. If a labor public or private sector labor union has a dispute with an employer in any of the unionized industries, I am experienced in handling discipline and contract interpretation cases in arbitrations and representation cases before the local, state and national labor boards.
- Shop Steward’s training – I am adept at training shop stewards with due regard of the culture of the union and the direction of its leadership. A typical training program might be to analyze the main labor contracts of the local or governing rules of the organization. I work with union leaders that set the agenda for stewards or members training as desired by the organization.
Regardless of the size of your union or whether you work in the public or private sector, you can rely on me for strong guidance and determined advocacy.
