Hach & Rose is Dedicated to the Representation of Union Members and their Families

New York state is one of the top ten states for Labor Union membership in the United States, with 4,519,121 members. The Department of Labor has implemented many safety regulations that are designed to keep jobsites safe and free from accidents. However, each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed on the job from failure to follow such regulations. At Hach & Rose, LLP, we pride ourselves on having intimate knowledge of labor laws, and are deeply committed to representing labor union members. If you are a Union Member, do not hesitate to give us a call. We are a union- oriented injury firm and are intimately familiar with the injuries and situations which can arise in this line of work.

Our firm has long-standing ties to the organized labor movement in the United States, and particularly in New York. Gregory Hach’s father was a highly respected leader of the Labor movement in New York, and throughout his career, he has fought for the rights of union members in a variety of types of personal injury cases. Furthermore, Attorney Hach is the developer of LOHRSOFT, or Labor Organization Healthcare Reimbursement Software, which helps union members get the compensation they need for the costs of an injury from their health plans and third-parties responsible for their damages.

Aside from Attorney Hach, many other members of our law firm have had connections to the organized labor movement, either as legal counsel to labor unions or as members themselves. Therefore, we understand the needs of union workers better than most other firms, and we put this knowledge to use in fighting for our clients’ rights.

We have successfully represented clients from the following unions:

  • International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers and Helpers (Boilermakers)
  • United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers (Roofers)
  • International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW)
