The Pima Area Labor Federation (PALF), southern Arizona subsidiary of the AFL-CIO, is a coalition of affiliated labor unions in our region that work collectively to make Pima County a safe and economically viable place to work and raise a family. On June 4, 2015, the firm was honored to receive the 2015 Community Service Award from the Pima Area Federation of Labor and The City of Tucson. The firm was recognized for our efforts over the years to advocate on behalf of workers throughout the state of Arizona. As P.A.L.F. Chairman Fred Yamashita noted, chief among these efforts was the historic 2011 Recall of then Arizona Senate-President Russell Pearce. Firm partner Chad Snow was the Chairman of the Recall effort and partner Alex Carpio served as general counsel. Mr. Yamashita noted in presenting the award that the Pearce Recall was a turning point in Arizona politics that protected the rights of Arizona workers to collectively bargain, have access to affordable healthcare, and provide a quality education for their children. Yamashita also noted the lobbying efforts done by the firm at the State Legislature to protect the rights of injured workers, as well as the firm’s pro bono efforts on behalf of the Arizona Democratic Party Clean Elections Committee, Chicanos Por La Causa, and the Diocese of Tucson Parish. Attorney Diana Ezrre-Robles, a Tucson native, gave a speech accepting the award on behalf of the firm.

The recall was successful, and was the first time in U.S. history that a sitting legislative leader had been removed from office via Recall. Chad Snow continues to this day as Chairman of CBA.
