Effective union-management relations can create a competitive advantage for an employer. Thompson Coburn works with our clients to develop strategic and fair approaches to managing relationships with employees and unions.
Our union-management relations practice includes the representation of employers regarding unfair labor practice proceedings, grievance/arbitration matters and strike injunction cases. We represent employers before the National Labor Relations Board, state labor relations agencies and the federal courts. We also negotiate collective bargaining agreements for many clients. The firm’s experience includes matters arising under the National Labor Relations Act, the Railway Labor Act and other labor statutes.
Our partners are recognized for handling union elections and other union matters throughout the United States. Our successful approach to avoiding unions does not rely on anti-union sentiment, but rather on the fair and consistent treatment of all employees.
