Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Charlene Peterson


Thanks to her mother, Alicia finds herself representing software coders for software developer Blowtorch. It all started when Charlene Peterson's husband Frank was killed in a car accident after working excessive hours. The employees, including Charlene, are looking for better working conditions, overtime etc... but when Alicia and Cary meet their lawyer - Alicia's nemesis Nancy Crozier - all 20 employees involved are fired on the spot. They all end up in front of the NLRB arguing that Blowtorch fired the employees when they were trying to form a union. The case has some blow-back on the firm however when the assistants demand better pay and working conditions. Even Kalinda is seriously thinking of leaving Lockhart Gardner and accepting an offer from Cary and the other fourth year associates who are looking to start a new firm. On the campaign trail meanwhile, the election is only two weeks away and Peter needs Alicia's help. Written by garykmcd

More Perfect Union is Labor Pains ***1/2
21 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Alicia becomes involved in a case where disgruntled workers are demanding union representation, she gets involved in this in the weirdest way. Her mother has her come to the funeral of a friend who died sleeping at the wheel of his car and she and another co-worker want Alicia to take the case.

While this is occurring, Lockhart-Gardner has "union" trouble of their own. The associates are threatening to organize as they want more money. One of the associates is a real potential union buster with his threat of firing people so that he can break the group up.

With Peter now behind in the polls, he is urged to go negative. Strange thing here is that Eli, in charge of his campaign, is absent for this episode. Pete also wants to renew his marriage vows with Alicia, while her mother wants her to pursue Will Gardner. Alicia's math professor brother appears in this episode and is effective.
