Union-Management Relations

Representing Employers in Northern California

Businesses need skilled representation when handling matters concerning labor unions. Because unions present a range of practical and legal issues, it is critical that your business hires an experienced attorney who concentrates on labor laws.

At Simpson, Garrity, Innes & Jacuzzi, P.C., our highly trained legal team offers comprehensive traditional labor services to employers. We work with businesses to ensure their rights are protected when dealing with unions.

Labor Law Attorneys Protecting Businesses

Our firm’s traditional labor services include all aspects of labor/management relations, including:

  • Collective bargaining — We represent businesses at any point in the collective bargaining process. Our attorneys assume whatever role best suits your company’s needs, whether as a negotiator, team member or reviewer for businesses seeking to negotiate on their own.
  • Picketing — Picketing can cause a number of practical and legal problems. Our firm assists companies in preparing for and responding to picketing. We have extensive experience working with employers in the construction industry with these issues.
  • Unfair labor practice charges — We represent businesses charged with various unfair labor practices, such as refusal-to-bargain issues.
  • Labor arbitration — Our lawyers represent employers defending grievances in this dispute resolution process.
  • Multi-Employer Pension Plan Act — Withdrawal from a union relationship can trigger an unfunded pension liability under the Multi-Employer Pension Plan Act. Our attorneys advise employers regarding potential withdrawal liability issues.
