Jessica Caggiano concentrates her practice on labor law, advocating for union and worker rights at a time when these rights have never been more important. Her work includes handling labor arbitrations, contract bargaining and litigation for public and private sector unions. Jessica’s union defense litigation has involved constitutional issues in the wake of the Janus decision. She also offers ongoing advice, training and presentations on topics ranging from workplace discrimination and social media use in the workplace, to grievances and labor arbitration.
Before joining the firm, Jessica worked tirelessly on behalf of public-sector workers as counsel for the New York State Public Employees Federation, AFL-CIO (PEF) and the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA). For over 6 years, she was a member of USW Local 9265 where she also served as a union health benefits committee member.
WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
“Workers built America, yet they are often the most vulnerable in the employment setting without a strong union to fight for them. As the descendant of a long line of workers and union members, I am inspired to fight for people I know work hard every day. They deserve strong representation and advocacy.”
AWAY FROM WORK
“I enjoy spending time with my family—I have two young children. I’m also an avid runner (Boston Marathon finisher) and hockey player. I am interested in Japanese culture and have been to Japan twice.”
