WORKERS' VOICES ON THE WORKING PEOPLE's LAW CENTER

After a spotless record for 25 years I was shocked and embarrassed that the DOE could suspend me. Thank you so much for being patient with me especially when I called you repeatedly and needed reassurance. I am so happy that the event is over!

I am absolutely over the moon about the outcome of my arbitration! I got to see their faces when the manager had to hire me back. I have only good and kind things to say about how you handled the arbitration. Please know that I am most grateful to you for this victory."
