Managing a union workforce presents special challenges that require knowledgeable labor practitioners to represent and guide you.

Our labor attorneys are leaders in their field and are ready to spring into action at a moment’s notice to orchestrate your company’s response and handling of union organizational campaigns, unfair labor practice claims, labor arbitrations, collective bargaining, union contract administration, and more. Years of practicing traditional labor law makes us uniquely qualified to guide you through the complexities of issues that arise under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and the Railway Labor Act (RLA).

Our labor team brings a wealth of unsurpassed experience in representing management in:

  • Determining Bargaining Units
  • Grievances and Arbitrations
  • Negotiating Collective Bargaining Agreements
  • Responding to Strikes and Picketing
  • Union Elections (with significant experience under the “quickie election” rules)
  • Unfair Labor Practice Charges (ULPs)

We have decades of proven successes helping businesses stay union free, win decertification elections, and gain management-friendly provisions through collective bargaining. Our tough, no-nonsense approach reflects our deep commitment to achieving the best possible labor-management outcome that meets your company’s current and future strategic goals.
