NYC Labor LawyersLabor laws regulate the rights of labor unions and their members and their relationships and dealings with employers.

The experienced labor law attorneys of Lichten & Bright, P.C. represent labor unions in disputes with management, including unfair labor practice disputes, contract grievances, and collective bargaining, and we litigate disputes on behalf of unions in state and federal court. One area where we have had particular success has been in the representation of workers who have been fired in retaliation for exercising their rights as union members, or for trying to organize a union, often winning them their jobs back with substantial back pay awards. We also represent individual public employees, including teachers and other civil servants, in disciplinary proceedings, including arbitrations and administrative trials held pursuant to Civil Service Law, and Education Law §3020-a hearings.

Our past and present clients include New York-based affiliates of AFSCME, the Communications Workers of America, the American Federation of Teachers, the Transport Workers Union of America,The Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association, the Industrial Workers of the World, as well as other unions, including independent unions. We also represent individual union members, and non-union civil servants, in disciplinary proceedings, including grievance hearings, administrative trials and arbitrations.
