Company Profile

The Fairness Center is a nonprofit, public interest law firm that provides free legal services to those hurt by public-sector union officials. Being, above all, client centric, we vigorously pursue our clients’ goals through a cohesive, holistic approach to representation, advocating for our clients both in the court of law and the court of public opinion. The firm’s seasoned litigation attorneys employ a variety of strategies to further our clients’ best interests, handling matters ranging from administrative charges and hearings to traditional and class-action lawsuits in federal and state courts. Our firm has filed a wide variety of lawsuits on behalf of individuals who are both union and non-union members. Our clients have: • Forced Pennsylvania’s largest public unions to change their contracts, freeing over 50,000 public employees from limits on when they can leave the union. • Uncovered stolen union dues and demanded answers for why a union didn’t follow its own financial policies while tens of thousands of dollars were embezzled. • Defended a local union’s right to separate from a state union—and exposed what a court called “questionable” financial practices. • Won a judge’s ruling that union officials violated their duty to treat all employees fairly when the union misled its own members during contract ratification. • Filed federal class actions against three of Pennsylvania’s largest public unions over how they trap thousands of employees into membership or into paying dues after they leave the union.
