At its board meeting in Pittsburgh last week, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry recognized Jeff Pasek, past chair of Cozen O'Connor’s Labor & Employment department, for 30 years of service as a member of the board. Jeff was also reelected as a member of the chamber’s Executive Committee and Nominating Committee. The Pennsylvania Chamber — widely known as the Statewide Voice of BusinessTM — was founded in 1916 by a group of more than 100 influential business leaders from across the commonwealth who recognized the need for a unified voice for business in the halls of the state Capitol. Their mission is to articulate and advocate on public policy issues that will expand private sector job creation and lead to a more prosperous Pennsylvania for all its citizens.
Jeff maintains a national practice of representing employers in all facets of labor and employment law. Jeff has handled collective bargaining negotiations and grievance arbitrations in a variety of industries, including apparel, construction, education, entertainment, food, health care, life sciences, retail, and transportation. A former management trustee of a nationwide retirement plan, Jeff also has extensive experience in handling withdrawal liability claims involving multi-employer pension plans. Jeff's experience includes litigation of numerous class action and individual cases involving allegations of race, sex, age, and national origin discrimination, including before the U.S. Supreme Court.
