Knowledgeable Labor Law Attorney to Fight for Your Rights
Unions were created to allow workers to have a stronger voice when it came to negotiating with companies. Unfortunately, some businesses discourage employees from joining unions and may even discriminate against or harass employees who join union. Also, some union leaders lose sight of the reasons unions were created and don’t act in the best interests of the employee.
If you have been let down by your union or if your company has made it difficult for you to be a part of a union, help is available.
The labor law attorneys at Levine & Blit have the knowledge and expertise to help you navigate these issues. Contact our national law firm today.
