Labor Union & Concerted Activity Protection Lawyers in Arizona

Employees have a right to form and join a union, even in Arizona. But, did you know that even if you don’t have the benefit of union representation, you still have a protected right to engage in activities to better terms and conditions of employment with your fellow coworkers? This is a right guaranteed to employees under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).


The key is that you must engage in these activities with at least one other employee. This is known as “concerted” activity under the NLRA. The collective action engaged in by nonunion employees is like the collective action employees exercise under a union; hence, they are both protected activities under the NLRA. 

We frequently counsel employees who have faced adverse employment action because they spoke on behalf of their fellow workers to improve a term or condition of employment. Unbeknown to them, they have been subjected to unlawful retaliation by their employer. Employees can file a charge of discrimination with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) if they believe they have been retaliated against for engaging in protected concerted activity. We are ready to inform you of your rights and provide the information you need to pursue your charge.

If you seek information on how to form a union, review the Formation & Operation of Labor Organization section of our website.
