Summer Fellow Lisa Eisneberg working at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 in Philadelphia

Lisa Eisenberg’s primary focus at Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 was working with the union’s organizers and agents with Right-to-Know requests, especially appeals when said requests were denied. “I was shocked to see how common deemed denials are,” she explained; “I anticipated some denials when I first started working on the requests, but didn't realize how many would simply be ignored.”

 In addition, Lisa assisted with writing and filing charges with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and performed research for a review of a decision by the NLRB’s Regional Director. She was able to sit in on an unfair labor practice hearing and was involved in the representation election process within the union. She also joined Local 19’s organizers in attending a conference in Wilmington, DE, where a representative from the international union spoke about fighting against Right to Work legislation around the country.

 She said, “Working with Local 19 this summer has added a new layer of depth to my commitment to dedicating my career to working for labor rights, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience.”
