Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining

Our attorneys serve as chief negotiators on behalf of management in collective bargaining.  If we are not directly at the bargaining table, we provide counsel and advice to the employer’s chief negotiator on bargaining strategy and specific issues behind the scenes. Our involvement in negotiations, whether we are at the bargaining table or not, includes all aspects from salary, to discipline, and working conditions.  Once the contract is approved, we will then work with our management team to assist in the implementation and administration of the negotiated agreement.  This will include any disciplinary issues, grievances, and representation during arbitrations concerning contractual and disciplinary disputes. 

Whatever the labor or employment issue concerns, our clients can be confident that our Firm's expertise will provide the guidance and assurance to reach the successful conclusion desired.
