Testimonials

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job Joe Brock and LRI did for our employees. Joe was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and has great interpersonal skills that allow him to genuinely connect with employees at all levels. Our facilities mechanics and custodians were so appreciate of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. Joe also left management with a lot to think about and a road map of what needs to be done differently. Our employees ultimately voted to overwhelmingly defeat the Teamsters 43-no to 3-yes that allows us to continue to work directly with our employees in their best interest giving the us the opportunity to make things right. Joe was a great partner to HR as well, collaborating on the strategy and actions needed to make the union campaign a success. Thank you again for the great service. I would welcome the opportunity to be a reference for Joe and LRI at anytime.

Hi Jim and Phil, I would like to thank your team on our recent victory over the IAFF in our election on Friday. We won with about 2/3 of the votes in our favor. I could not have done it without the great work of Scott Michel. He got to the root of the problem almost immediately and got me headed in the right direction. Thanks again for your expert help.

Pot Workers Unionize to Save LA Dispensaries

With the future of their jobs hanging in the political balance, workers in a dozen Los Angeles medical marijuana shops have joined UFCW Local 770.  Pot workers believe the union will be able to apply enough political pressure to avert a citywide ban on dispensaries and the end of their jobs.

Councilman Jose Huizar has pushed for a ban since community activists from his district complained about the neighborhood’s high number of dispensaries.  Unfortunately for Councilman Huizar, he was once a good friend of Big Labor and enjoyed the endorsement of the UFCW and AFSCME.

Rick Icaza, the president of UFCW Local 770, said the union will work towards an ordinance that stops short of a total ban on dispensaries, and that unionizing the workers “is the next step in professionalizing and stabilizing this new sector of the healthcare industry.”
