In many ways our labor section is the foundation of our law firm. Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer was the first law firm to represent labor back in the 1950′s. Our reputation was built and strongly earned because of our commitment and service to the men and women represented by labor unions. From that grew our Workers’ Compensation practice
Out of our evolving practice grew our Group Legal Services. We are proud to offer organizations that represent workers effective and affordable legal services to ensure a level playing field between management and labor. No union is too small to retain our services. Our labor department represents international labor organizations that represent thousands of workers to small unaffiliated unions that represent only dozens of employees. In turn, our clients represent a diverse mix of the American workforce such as dock workers, teachers, police officers, farm workers, bus drivers, truck drivers, construction workers, among many others.
Our expertise is as varied as the institutional labor clients we represent. We can offer representation and advice from the initial creation of a labor union through its first collective bargaining agreement. Our work has ranged from representation before the National Labor Relations Board and the Ohio State Employment Relations Board to the United States Supreme Court.
We have over three quarters of a century of experience advising workers’ organizations in how to use the law most effectively in order to achieve the aspirations of their members. Our labor section is second to none when it comes providing unions aggressive representation in the arbitration process, in the negotiation of strong collective bargaining agreements or when strategizing corporate campaigns against recalcitrant employers.
The Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer labor department has risen to the challenge time and time again through the decades to act not only as a sword for our clients, but also as a shield.
