We can help you navigate labor negotiations with your union and management and can be involved in any role where you need our HR and labor experience and expertise, including help with contract language and financials.

Before negotiations begin, we can work with you to map an effective strategy for negotiating a labor contract that meets your goals.

Once negotiations are underway or complete, we can review your draft or final contracts.

We have experience helping business managers and owners avoid unionization efforts.

Healthy, productive relationships between management and your employees are essential to your organization’s long-term success. We can perform a labor relations audit which assesses the strengths and weaknesses in the labor relations sphere at your organization.
