Peter W. Zinober, Labor & Employment practice group co-chair of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, has been inducted into the Tampa/Hillsborough County Human Rights Council’s Hall of Fame during its 40th Annual Human Rights Awards Celebration. The organization’s theme for its 2013 hallmark year was “Marching Forward: Advancing the Dream.”
Following a keynote address by Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Mr. Zinober was recognized for his lifelong commitment to human rights advocacy specifically in Tampa/Hillsborough as well as throughout the state and nation. He was recognized alongside seven other community members, all of whom were present at the August 1963 Civil Rights March in Washington, D.C. In addition to recognizing the Hall of Fame inductees, the organization issued awards to local organizations, politicians, and business leaders for contributions and achievements in promoting human rights and equality for all individuals.
Mr. Zinober is a national labor and employment lawyer specializing in the defense of employment discrimination cases in state and federal court, as well as wage and hour, disability discrimination, age and all other types of employment litigation. He also specializes in "traditional" labor management relations law, including the representation of employers in connection with unfair labor practice and representation case proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board, labor and non-union arbitrations, collective bargaining and counseling. Mr. Zinober is an active member of several community organizations and a philanthropic patron of the performing arts and cultural communities of Tampa Bay.
The primary purpose of the Tampa Hillsborough Human Right Council is to advocate and promote through education, publicity, negotiations and other means - the legitimate and human rights of all residents of Hillsborough County. Whenever feasible, the Council works in cooperation with, and in support of, established community agencies/groups that are dedicated to the defense and strengthening of these rights, and in its membership and actions which reflect such goals.
