At Nixon Peabody, we bring extensive expertise to the table when it comes to assisting employers with labor relations, including managing unionized workforces, and navigating intricate union organizing campaigns.
For employers with employees who are not union-represented, our labor relations attorneys guide employers on the legal framework that applies to unions and employers prior to, during, and after the representation process, including strategies for employers facing union corporate campaigns. Our labor relations attorneys represent employers in connection with representation petitions and other election-related proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and court litigation and appeals.
We also provide a broad range of services to employers with union workforces. Our attorneys negotiate collective bargaining agreements, assist employers facing work stoppages or picketing, advise on labor complications related to business acquisitions or dispositions, arbitrate contract grievances, and prosecute and defend charges of unfair labor practices before the NLRB.
Our attorneys also advise employers on legal issues relating to union benefit funds. The team has significant experience negotiating employer withdrawals from multiemployer pension plans, and arbitrating disputes relating to the assessment of withdrawal liability under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
Our esteemed national, cross-industry practice comprises attorneys with a specialized focus in labor relations laws across various sectors, including healthcare, food and beverage, construction, entertainment, and manufacturing industries. They are also closely following the trends of organized labor in the burgeoning cannabis industry.
When it comes to employee and labor relations, Nixon Peabody is your trusted partner for comprehensive, strategic, and results-driven guidance.
