Union Avoidance

With a comprehensive human-resources program in place and a proactive approach to dealing with employment issues, today’s employers can maintain a non-union business and fully comply with laws regulating the workplace.

To maintain a union-free workforce, management must understand the process by which unions organize, and be trained on how to lawfully and rapidly respond. Even when employees choose to be represented by a union, it is possible to maintain a profitable and competitive business. The firm has decades of experience advising employers on effectively and legally maintaining a union-free workforce, and in maintaining a successful business when employees have chosen to be represented by a union.

Union issues can be complex and are heavily regulated by both state and federal agencies. Our attorneys are highly skilled at assisting client companies with the preventive planning and training needed to stay within the guidelines of governing entities and meet the requirements imposed by the National Labor Relations Act.  We have extensive experience handling a comprehensive range of labor- and union-related matters, including:

  • Union organizing
  • NLRB elections
  • Double-breasting
  • Labor arbitrations
  • Negotiations
  • Collective bargaining agreements
  • Renewal bargaining agreements for single and multi-employers
  • National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proceedings
  • Unfair labor practices
  • Picketing
  • Work stoppages – strikes and lockouts
