Sandulli Grace attorney Bryan Decker was featured in a WBUR-FM radio broadcast regarding Massachusetts’ new medical marijuana law on Tuesday morning, February 19, 2013. The report by WBUR radio journalist Martha Bebinger, explores various implications of the new law, including its effects on police officers, who are bound by federal laws making marijuana an illegal substance, and their families. “The federal law is the federal law,” Decker told Bebinger. “In Massachusetts, it is a job condition for police officers to carry a firearm. I think that is clear.” A transcription of the story can be found here: http://www.wbur.org/2013/02/19/marijuana-laws.
As he has for many years, Atty. Sandulli will be teaching a course at the Labor Guild’s School of Labor Relations. Classes run in two sessions on Monday evenings from September 13 through November 15, from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. in Weymouth.
Joe’s class, entitled “Labor Strategies,” focuses on how to coordinate legal action, political action, public relations and negotiations to deal effectively on the range of labor-management issues in both public and private sectors. The class will also feature guest speakers who are actively involved in these respective endeavors.
The Labor Guild is a longstanding program of the Boston Archdiocese to educate “men and women members of unions, management, and others who are interested in furthering sound labor-management relations.” In addition to Atty. Sandulli’s course, there are a number of other valuable offerings in the upcoming fall period.
Joseph Sandulli was the 2008 winner of the prestigious Cushing-Gavin Award for his nearly four decades of outstanding service on behalf of labor unions to the labor-management community.

Sandulli Grace, PC founder Joe Sandulli has been awarded the 2008 Cushing-Gavin Award for Union Attorneys, the highest honor bestowed upon members of the New England labor management community. He will receive the award at the Labor Guild’s 42nd Annual Awards dinner on November 20 at the Sheraton Boston.
Since 1946, the Labor Guild has advanced the interests of Massachusetts workers and strengthened bonds between representatives of labor and management. In 1952, the Guild started offering classes to workers through its School of Industrial Relations. In 1967, the Guild established the Cushing Awards Dinner to honor achievement in the field of labor management. The Dinner has grown to be the largest annual event in the Boston labor management community and provides financial support to its School.
Joe has actively supported the Labor Guild since he began his career in the Boston labor community more than 35 years ago. He has served as a Faculty member of the Labor Guild’s School for many years, teaching courses ranging from “Law and Labor Relations” to “Labor Strategies,” his current course offering. His selection as a Cushing-Gavin Awardee highlights not only his standing in the community, but also his commitment to labor education and to the Labor Guild.
Upon learning of his selection, Joe was, as usual, quick to credit the whole team at Sandulli Grace. “While it’s a great personal honor to be selected for this award, what it shows is the standing that Sandulli Grace has in the labor management community,” Sandulli stated. “The legacy of quality representation that Sandulli Grace provides to labor unions and their members is the proudest achievement of my legal career.”
Thanks Joe, but why don’t you take a while to let us all be proud of you for a change.
