Union Experience

How we help

Each company is unique. We provide our clients with individualized and practical solutions to their real-world labor problems. We utilize our experience and expertise to help you achieve your goals. We are experienced in all aspects of labor relations.
Industry Experience
Collective Bargaining:

We have negotiated hundreds (if not thousands) of labor agreements with nearly all of the unions in the Pacific Northwest. We are experienced in both traditional and interest-based bargaining, whether we are the chief negotiators at the bargaining table or helping behind-the-scenes. 

Representation Elections:

We have successfully helped clients fight off union organizing campaigns. We provide a strategic, individualized management campaign to maximize your business’ chances to defeat an organizing effort.

Union Avoidance:

Union avoidance should begin before an election campaign has started. We craft specialized plans to help businesses legally avoid unionization.

Grievance & Arbitrations:

We advise clients through the grievance process and represent clients through all aspects of labor arbitrations. We are experienced in handling labor arbitrations in a variety of industries in cases involving discharges, discipline, contract interpretation, scheduling, seniority violations, no-strike violations, and secondary boycott activity.

Labor Disputes:

Labor relations can be easy when things are going well. When they become difficult between a business and a union, a labor dispute may arise. This may involve a labor strike, a secondary boycott, or informational picketing. We are experienced in helping our clients navigate all types of labor disputes.

Unfair Labor Practice Proceedings:

We represent clients before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Washington Public Employee Relations Commission (PERC), and the Oregon Employment Relations Board (ERB) in connection with administrative labor charges.
