Labor Law - Union Representation

Employment Law - Individual and Class Representation



 

Amy L. Rosenberger

A partner in Willig, Williams & Davidson’s labor department, Amy L. Rosenberger represents labor unions and individual employees before state and federal courts and in arbitrations, negotiations and administrative proceedings. With more than 20 years of experience as a labor practitioner, Amy also counsels and trains employees and union representatives with respect to employment disputes and their rights under the law.

Amy considers it a privilege to assist working individuals by advocating for their rights, seeking fair contracts at the bargaining table and imparting the knowledge and skills they need to confidently stand toe-to-toe with employer representatives. To that end, she frequently presents union client education workshops to ensure that workers always have access to the latest information that will empower them to stand up for their rights.
