Managing a productive workforce is more challenging than ever. Unions have increased their organizing efforts and the NLRB has expanded employee protections in union and non-union shops. Our team is committed to helping you navigate your labor issues. We have counseled and represented employers in union organizing drives, collective bargaining, labor contract administration, decertification proceedings and in unfair labor practices proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board.
Our lawyers have also acted as chief spokesperson in collective bargaining negotiations and provided effective behind-the-scenes counsel to employers who decide to handle their own collective bargaining. We regularly critique the union’s proposals, draft employer proposals, manage communications with employees and the media, provide experienced representation at mediation/conciliation, and provide legal representation at the labor board hearings.
Our team is experienced and adaptable. We have effectively handled all types of labor disputes. While many disputes can be resolved through negotiation and mediation, our lawyers have considerable experience handling matters that require arbitration. We also represent employers in unfair labor practice proceedings, in injunction proceedings, in grievance and interest arbitration proceedings, in union decertification efforts and in appellate work concerning the enforcement of NLRB decisions.
