At Much, we can handle the entire gamut of labor-management relations issues. Our attorneys assist employers in lawfully and successfully responding to union organizing campaigns and representation elections. We negotiate collective bargaining agreements and represent employers in arbitrations arising under those agreements. We defend unfair labor practice charges filed against employers with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Our attorneys handle representation/decertification elections; lawsuits involving collective bargaining agreements; and strikes, picketing, walkouts, lockouts, secondary boycotts, consumer boycotts, and other job actions. We also defend employers in cases brought by union-sponsored pension or welfare plans for delinquent contributions or withdrawal liability, and we counsel employers on avoiding such liability.
Our experience extends to all aspects of the due diligence process regarding labor issues, as well as providing counsel in mergers and acquisitions involving workforces represented by unions.
