Labor and Employment Law

For three generations, Branstetter, Stranch & Jennings has proudly represented labor unions in all legal matters pertaining to employer-employee relations. We represent industrial, construction and public sectors unions, district and joint councils, state feds and CLC’s. Our attorneys have litigated labor law issues at every level, from NLRB trials and state and federal district courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court. It is not uncommon to find our attorneys and staff reinforcing picket lines with lunch or coffee or answering questions at organizing meetings.

We provide trustworthy representation for our union clients. This includes the arbitration of grievances, collective bargaining, contract negotiation and enforcement of labor-related claims through litigation at the NLRB, in federal courts and issues concerning restrictive covenants, severance agreements and many other union-related matters.

 Our firm helped expand Title VII retaliation protection in Thompson v. North American Stainless LP, a case that reached the United States Supreme Court, and similarly expanded what is considered a complaint in a whistleblower case before the Kentucky Supreme Court in Workforce Development Cabinet v. Gaines

With offices in Cincinnati, Louisville and Nashville, we represent unions throughout the Midwest and South, including in the states of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee.
