Alexander (Alex) is an Associate in Liebert Cassidy Whitmore’s Los Angeles office where he provides assistance to clients in labor relations matters as well as employment law. Alex has a background in government and policy and provides clients advice and counsel on traditional labor relations issues, including collective bargaining, allegations of unfair practices, representation matters, and work stoppages.   

Alex represents clients before the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) and other employment relations boards on matters related to unfair labor practice and recognition petitions. He handles grievance arbitrations regarding public safety employees and employee organizations on matters such as job classifications and pay. Alex also provides clients advice on matters concerning bargaining obligations, impasse proceedings (including factfinding), unit recognition and modification procedures, work stoppages and strikes, contract interpretation issues, and requests for information (including privileges, such as attorney-client and deliberative process) to limit the scope of responsive information.

Alex also has significant experience drafting and negotiating Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on behalf of public sector clients throughout the state, as well as providing advice and counsel to clients regarding issues that may arise under such agreements after adoption.

Alex has worked with cities, counties, joint powers authorities, transportation agencies, and special districts on PLAs that cover construction work on a single-project, as well as agreements that cover multiple projects.  Alex works with clients and their technical staff to ensure that such agreements address key operational issues, so that the project(s) covered by the agreement are delivered in an efficient and timely manner, and that issues that may arise in the field and lead to delays are instead addressed at the negotiating table.  Alex also works with elected policymakers to incorporate policy goals that may be included in such agreements, including local or targeted hiring, preference for certain business enterprises, and apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship training programs.

In total, Alex has worked on PLAs that cover or will cover in excess of four billion dollars in construction work. 

Alex also has experience working on Labor Peace Agreements and has provided advice and counsel to public sector clients
