Pamela has practiced union-side labor law since 2005, but her commitment to the labor movement and justice for workers runs much deeper. Pamela grew up in a union household where her father, who came out of the steel industry, was a union representative and organizer for the United Steelworkers for almost 30 years.
Growing up in Cincinnati, her family roots stem from the working class culture of Appalachia, and it was instilled in her from a young age that politics matter and that all workers deserve dignity and respect. Pamela interned as an organizer with the AFL-CIO’s Union Summer Program, and during law school, she clerked at various organizations, including the Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, the United Steelworkers legal department, and unions in Amsterdam and London. Pamela’s law practice, which has its beginnings with Tom Kircher – one of the founders of KSA – has been dedicated to helping working men and women understand and exercise their rights at work.
Pamela views her role as one within the broader campaigns and goals of her clients; in this vein, she has assisted with union organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, and steward and member education and engagement. Pamela also has a particular passion for assisting immigrant workers. Before joining KSA, Pamela worked for 8 years as General Counsel for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 75, where she had the opportunity to litigate unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board on behalf of immigrant workers and facilitate immigration clinics, assisting with citizenship applications and deferred action. Pamela joined BS&J in 2018.
