Labor Relations

While anti-harassment training and discrimination lawsuits get the lion's share of attention these days, unions remain a force in the workplace. Unions aggressively look for opportunities to unionize non-union workforces and actively recruit new employees.

Much Shelist handles all aspects of labor relations. Our attorneys help employers run successful—and legal—campaigns in response to union organizing efforts and union elections. We negotiate collective bargaining agreements, defend unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and arbitrate grievances and labor disputes under your collective bargaining agreements. Our attorneys advise employers on issues relating to strikes, picketing, walkouts, lockouts, secondary boycotts and other job actions. We also defend Multi-Employer Pension Plan Act cases by union pension funds seeking to audit your books and collect unpaid pension and welfare fund contributions.
