Our approach to labor relations is to put the emphasis on "relations." We build close working relationships with our clients in order to help them develop strategies for dealing with both union and non-union environments. Stable labor-management relations require trust, so we strive to uphold our clients' credibility in the workplace as well as our own. Employers and labor respect our firm for the integrity we bring to the process and the results we achieve.
In addition to advising employers on labor matters and contract negotiations, we regularly handle a full range of labor relations matters, including:
Union organizing drives — campaigns and elections
Unfair labor practice charges
Collective bargaining and contract administration
Union issues arising out of mergers and acquisitions, successorship and business or plant shutdowns
By working closely with our clients and learning about their businesses in-depth, we are better able to anticipate and prevent labor and employment disputes. By offering seminars and training on an array of workplace legal issues, we help our clients learn to better protect themselves against disputes.
