About this Episode

Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by for another episode of The Brian Nichols Show! This week I had the pleasure of interviewing David Osborne of The Fairness Center!

The Fairness Center is a nonprofit, public interest law firm that provides free legal services to those hurt by public-sector union officials. Having worked with The Fairness Center as a chapter leader at the America's Future Foundation in Philadelphia, I wanted to make sure I brought them on my show to talk about the great work they do helping those public sector employees stand up for their rights against the corrupt union officials.

The Fairness Center Bio: The Fairness Center is a nonprofit, public interest law firm that provides free legal services to those hurt by public-sector union officials. Being, above all, client centric, we vigorously pursue our clients' goals through a cohesive, wholistic approach to representation, advocating for our clients both in the court of law and the court of public opinion. As we pursue our bedrock principle of excellent representation on behalf of our clients, the firm's seasoned litigation attorneys employ a variety of strategies to further our clients' best interests. Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to engage in complex civil litigation, and can handle matters ranging from administrative charges and hearings to filing traditional and class action lawsuits in federal and state courts.

Our firm has filed a wide variety of lawsuits on behalf of individuals who are both union and non-union members, and for organizations seeking to push back on injuries caused by the actions of public-sector union officials. This includes representing teachers who want to do what they love without supporting a union with which they disagree; a graduate assistant who wants an education without union involvement; a homecare worker who wants to protect his working relationship from union intrusion; taxpayers who want their money to support education, not union activity; a firefighter's local union trying to protect its firefighters' right to disaffiliate from a large, state union; and religious objectors to unionism who want to support that in which they believe, not what union officials choose for them.
