Our labor law attorneys can advise you on labor relations and union avoidance

Our labor law attorneys can assist your business by:

  • Providing management with strategies to remain union-free and to decertify labor unions.
  • Handling collective bargaining negotiations for unionized employers.
  • Counseling management on maximizing employer rights during labor disputes.
Union Avoidance
As a preventive tool we often deliver union avoidance training to clients that may be prone to a union drive. This training teaches managers and supervisors how to address issues that arise without violating NLRB rules.
Fighting Union Campaigns/Elections
We often get retained to assist management in fighting union elections. This involves taking an aggressive role in addressing issues raised by a potential union.
Collective Bargaining
Our firm represents employers in collective bargaining negotiations. This draws upon the skills and experience that are critical in obtaining the best possible outcome for employers who are reaching an agreement with a union.
