Management-Union Relations

Management-Union Relations

Overview

We routinely represent clients in their relationships with unions. We help negotiate collective bargaining agreements; represent clients in arbitration and unfair labor practice and election proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and state labor relations boards; and assist in the response to union organizational attempts, strikes and boycotts.

We have provided legal counsel in connection with numerous certification and decertification proceedings. Our representation of clients extends to Section 301 breach of contract/duty of fair representation cases and other types of union litigation, including successful defeats of union attempts enjoin plant closings and relocations.

We also have broad experience in dealing with union issues such as secondary boycotts, illegal picketing, and jurisdictional disputes in construction matters.
