Traditional Labor Relations

Aligning business goals with workforce strategies.

Husch Blackwell’s proactive approach to cultivating positive employee relations includes management training, monitoring grievances aired on social media and other proven union avoidance techniques. At the first hint of an organizing campaign, our attorneys respond swiftly and decisively. We counsel upper management on do’s and don’ts, script speeches and answer FAQs. 

For clients that have existing relationships with unions, our team has negotiated hundreds of collective-bargaining agreements. When the bargaining process breaks down, we defend clients against National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) allegations and assist in strike preparation, including obtaining injunctive relief in state and federal court.
