Labor Union Matters

Smith and Christensen, LLP, brings more than 50 years of combined experience to the table when representing companies in a wide range of labor issues, including matters such as:

  • Union avoidance;
  • Elections;
  • Collective bargaining;
  • Arbitration;
  • Grievances;
  • Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges;
  • De-certification petitions;
  • Labor management relations;
  • National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issues;
  • Strikes; and
  • Right-to-work issues.

Risk avoidance is also a critical part of the firm’s labor practice. For example, we will work with your management staff regarding restrictions on their conduct (i.e., no threats, interrogations, promises or surveillance) and advise you on Union avoidance strategies.

In Union organizing drives, it can be critical to start the company’s campaign as early as possible to prevent the Union from gaining a stronghold on your workforce. If you determine that you are facing organizing activity, we urge you to contact us immediately for guidance. Please do not question your workforce about the issue before you call. Often times, this can be the first unfortunate mistake companies make and might increase the complexity (and cost) of your defense efforts.
