Labor Relations

National Labor Relations Board

The Firm’s expertise in National Labor Relations Board proceedings derives in part from Ernest Collazo’s prior service as a staff attorney at the NLRB’s Regional Office (Region 2) in New York, but all of our attorneys have substantial experience in this area. We enjoy an active practice advising employers about labor relations and representing them in Representation and Unfair Labor Practice proceedings before the NLRB.

Labor Arbitrations

We regularly represent clients in arbitration proceedings brought under collective bargaining agreements, under employment agreements, and in “ad hoc” circumstances, including disciplinary arbitrations under “just cause” provisions and a wide range of contract interpretation disputes.  We are well acquainted with the arbitrators who commonly serve on arbitration panels, and have assisted the American Arbitration Association in the training of new arbitrators.
