Labor Management Relations
Baird Quinn LLC’s attorneys have broad experience counseling and litigating management in all aspects of labor relation matters. Our labor attorneys counsel businesses on union avoidance strategies, negotiation strategies for collective bargaining agreements, and administering union contracts.
Our attorneys also have significant experience representing clients in grievances brought under the grievance provisions of their collective bargaining contracts. We routinely represent our clients in arbitrations involving contract interpretation issues, such as workforce reductions, outsourcing, arbitrability of issues, timeliness of grievances, management rights, bargaining unit work, layoffs/recall, job posting/bidding, job classifications and rates, pay and benefits, personal and medical leaves, past practices, promotion and demotion. We also have significant experience representing clients in “just cause” arbitrations involving discipline and discharge issues. Over the past two decades, we have successfully handled hundreds of labor arbitrations on behalf of our clients.
Finally, Baird Quinn routinely represents clients at all stages of proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board. We have responded to unfair labor practice charges involving the broad gamut of labor management issues, including discrimination claims, bargaining issues, and information requests from unions. Baird Quinn’s labor attorneys can help management obtain dismissal or resolution of the unfair labor practice charges at the administrative level. If that is not possible, however, Baird Quinn can provide experienced labor lawyers to defend against unfair labor practice charges before the NLRB and the federal courts. Baird Quinn’s labor attorneys have also filed unfair labor practice charges against unions to prevent or end unlawful union activity.
