Our labor relations attorneys provide seasoned and effective guidance in dealing with issues for unionized employers in handling grievances, arbitrations, and negotiating collective bargaining agreements. Our attorneys have handled such matters for employers engaged in the manufacturing, public utilities, construction, nursing home, trucking, beer and wine distribution, and other industries. Utilizing a broad range of experiences in multiple industries permits us to assist management in developing bargaining strategies that lead toward achievement of bargaining goals.
Many of our clients are not unionized. Our firm had an integral role in developing effective strategies for employers to stay and remain union-free. Our practice before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has involved numerous union organizing campaigns, as well as handling unfair labor practice charges that may arise.
Because of our extensive practice in the construction industry, our firm has handled hundreds of picket lines, filing hundreds of unfair labor practice charges against unions with the NLRB. In addition, our firm has litigated and resolved numerous jurisdictional disputes in hearings before the NLRB.
In addition to our practice before the NLRB, our attorneys have a very active trial practice in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies. Our attorneys have extensive experience in litigating matters involving union-related issues, including litigation dealing with Ohio’s prevailing wage law, the Davis-Bacon Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, fringe benefit fund collection cases, and ERISA withdrawal liability matters. We represent our clients with one main goal in mind: achieving results.
