SECTION 13(C) LABOR PROTECTION

Thompson Coburn attorneys assist public transit agencies with issues that arise in connection with Section 13(c) labor protection obligations (now known as Section 533(b) of Title 49 of the United States code). This assistance includes filing and responding to objections to proposed certification terms, revising 13(c) protections, obtaining certification of grants from the Department of Labor (DOL), and providing analysis of 13(c) obligations in the restructuring of services, in contracting actions and in labor disputes involving collective bargaining terms.

Our representation also includes assistance in 13(c) litigation and in the adjudication of 13(c) claims before DOL and in private arbitration. In addition, our experience extends to a range of labor law issues affecting transit agencies, including the subcontracting of services, grievances, personnel matters, Family and Medical Leave Act issues, Davis Bacon Act compliance, and alcohol and drug testing.
