O’Donoghue & O’Donoghue LLP has a strong track record of helping labor unions and employee benefit funds achieve policy objectives at the local, state and federal levels of government.
In recent years, the firm has been particularly involved in efforts of building trades unions to develop and secure legislation, regulations and public policies which promote government use of reputable, qualified contractors and properly trained craft personnel. The firm’s attorneys and clients have leveraged a variety of vehicles to advance these goals, including procurement rules, prevailing wage laws, project labor agreements (PLAs), responsible contractor policies (RCPs), best value contracting, apprenticeship training policies, and whistleblower protection laws.
Working with our building trades clients, the firm’s attorneys have helped to achieve major reforms to state prevailing wage laws, numerous municipal RCPs, historic PLAs, innovative contractor and craft licensing ordinances, and important federal legislation that promotes training and employment opportunities for U.S. veterans.
