Public Employees Legal, LLP empowers independent labor unions by providing high quality and effective legal representation to unions and their members.  Union workplaces have many benefits: giving a voice to employees, creating a venue for grievances, safeguarding benefits, and providing job security.  In union workplaces the disparity between men’s and women’s income is half of what it is in non-union workplaces. Union workplaces offer systems that establish equality and challenge employers to make fair and unbiased decisions.  You have the right to form or participate in a union.  We provide assistance with:
