Labor Relations

One of Fisher & Phillips’ principal areas of concentration has always been in the areas of labor relations and traditional labor law. Our attorneys provide advice to our non-union clients on best practices for maintaining positive employee relations without the need for a third party employee representative and the legal guidelines to follow when faced with union organizing drives. We also represent unionized clients in collective bargaining, arbitration, strikes and lockouts, and unfair labor practice cases.

Fisher & Phillips attorneys have decades of experience practicing before the National Labor Relations Board, the National Mediation Board, and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. We also have gone head-to-head with some of the toughest and most politically-savvy unions in the nation. We have extensive experience with such advanced matters as corporate campaigns, decertification elections, multi-employer healthcare, and "corrective bargaining." We have traditional labor law experience in virtually every type of industry, but our experience has been especially concentrated in the manufacturing, transportation and logistics, airline, hospitality, health care, gaming, dairy, retail and service industries.
