Traditional Labor

As the climate for union organizational activity changes due to a more pro-union membership on the National Labor Relations Board and difficult economic conditions, more companies face greater vulnerability than in the recent past to union representation drives.  We have the experience to advise management on labor law issues relating to union pre-election campaigns, and to handle all representation and unfair labor practice proceedings before the NLRB.  When a company faces union strikes, boycotts or picketing activity, we have the means to pursue appropriate relief in the courts and before the NLRB.  We also represent companies at the bargaining table and at labor arbitrations, and provide counsel on effectively handling union contract and discharge grievances and complying with contractual just cause standards for disciplinary action.
