Bio
Mr. Myers has spent the majority of his legal career pursuing the interests of unionized public sector employees.  His current practice focuses on representing those employees in a variety of ways by providing guidance regarding the ever-changing regulatory and policy landscape of the various employing agencies; enforcing the terms and conditions of the collective bargaining agreement for the protection of all employees; filing and pursuing litigation before the New York State Public Employment Relations Board in order to enforce non-contractual terms and conditions of employment; negotiating agreements between local facilities and local union representatives specifically tailored to the needs of the local; defending against duty of fair representation claims; filing and pursuing various administrative complaints that resulted from negligent and/or unsafe actions of employers during the initial phases of the COVID-19 global pandemic; drafting numerous press releases to the general public and membership regarding major events that impact the membership; researching and providing comments regarding the impact of proposed regulatory changes; remedying improper medical terminations of members who are attempting to return to work after injury or illness; representing employees who are the subject of disciplinary charges brought by their employers; representing employees who are the subject of charges brought by the New York State Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs; conducting training of newly elected local and regional union representatives; drafting and revising internal union policies and practices; representing employees before sworn employer interrogations; pursuing employer compliance with state and federal safety and health regulations; and negotiating with the employer in instances where employees seek to pursue settlement agreements regarding various issues.

Successfully and effectively representing the interests of unions requires constant and focused contact with leadership, representatives, and the membership.  As unions evolve to adapt to new federal, state, and local laws and court decisions, new issues constantly present themselves.  Mr. Myers and the Public Sector Labor Practice Team have helped its union clients navigate through every issue that has arisen.
 
While in law school, Mr. Myers gained valuable union experience by working as a law clerk in the legal department of a prominent New York labor union.  He also served as Managing Editor for Research and Writing on the Albany Government Law Review and volunteered at one of the law school’s many legal clinics, providing free legal services to underserved members of the Capital District community.
