Labor Relations

A core component of our practice is the broad spectrum of activities that concern the relationship of employees to employers, both union and non-union. As a general matter, we represent management in connection with out role as general counsel to unionized charter schools and agencies providing residential and day habilitative services to developmentally disabled adults, but we also represent teachers and administrators, often in collaboration with their unions, in employment disputes against the New York City Department of Education. Whether representing management or union members, we recognize the importance of a stable workforce with healthy employer-employee relations.

Our clients enjoy working with us to devise creative and pragmatic solutions to their problems. We have extensive experience with all of the issues that concern them: collective bargaining negotiations, contract administration, arbitration, and mediation of grievances, union representation campaigns, unfair labor practice charges and grievance, and wrongful discharge issues.
