Labor Relations

When unionized private employers and public sector entities need a law firm tough enough to protect their interests and the bottom line in matters involving their organized labor, they turn to Goldberg Segalla. In addition to counseling and representing unionized workplaces, we work with non-unionized employers who increasingly find themselves the subject of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) inquiry, investigation, and litigation.

Our Employment and Labor team has proven time and again its leadership in this area through success in complex and high-profile cases, with results that have saved our clients significant money. Our attorneys understand and recognize the unique issues that arise when representing employers before the NLRB and equivalent state labor boards. Our experience includes:

  • Counseling on union avoidance, including issues involving union organization campaigns and elections
  • Filing and defending against unfair labor practice charges
  • Conducting labor negotiations, including representation during state and federal mediation and interest arbitration
  • Drafting and revising collective bargaining agreements
  • Litigating issues relating to collective bargaining agreements
  • Handling grievance arbitrations and disciplinary procedures
  • Litigation related to arbitrability, arbitration award enforcement, and award vacatur
  • Conducting workplace investigations and audits
