Lou Pechman was a Field Examiner for the National Labor Relations Board, where he handled the entire spectrum of unfair labor practice and union representation cases. In his previous role as Labor Counsel for the New York Daily News, Lou worked with 11 different trade unions, negotiated collective bargaining agreements and arbitrated union grievances. Lou has handled over 100 arbitrations, structured successful union avoidance campaigns, litigated unfair labor practice cases at the NLRB, and negotiated collective bargaining agreements in a variety of industries.
There is currently a wave of union organizing activities across the country. The rules about the “do’s and don’ts” when a union organizes a business are complex and counterintuitive. Pechman Law Group is one of the few New York City law firms experienced in traditional labor relations counseling and advice for employers when a union comes to a business to organize workers.
