Working with a union can be challenging for many businesses, which is why having a competent and experienced legal team is so beneficial. At Bettis Law Group LLP, our labor relations attorneys handled hundreds of labor-management relations matters over the years.
From recognizing and responding to organizing efforts, to collective bargaining, to arbitration of disputes, to representation in cases before the National Labor Relations Board and the courts, we assist you with avoiding disputes and mitigating potential liability while maintaining your ability to run your business.
As part of our labor-management relations services, we help handle:
Labor Crisis Management
Strikes and picketing can be costly to your bottom line, so avoiding them is our priority. And when you can’t avoid a strike, we provide advice and solutions tailored to helping you weather the storm and avoid costly unfair labor practice charges.
Labor Litigation and Dispute Resolution
If a dispute arises, we know how to handle the situation. Our decades of experience put us in a strong position to represent your business’ interests. We can help you with labor arbitration of contract disputes, as well as representing you in matters before the National Labor Relations Boards and in the courts.
Collective Bargaining and Labor-Management Relations
The collective bargaining agreement between your business and a union is the starting point for maintaining your ability to run your business in a unionized environment. We can help with bargaining over an initial agreement, or maintaining an ongoing agreement. We can also assist you in maintaining compliance with your agreement and navigating matters that arise in administering the agreement’s provisions.
Employees seek out unions for a reason. We can help you avoid situations that cause employees to seek out unions and to recognize when a union is seeking to organize your employees. In addition, if your business has become the target of an organizational drive by a union, we can help you avoid unfair labor practice charges and maintain legal compliance in your response efforts.
