Employee pay and benefits are critical issues for any employer for two reasons: It is how you attract and keep the best people possible, and it is therefore the most expensive part of your budget. Union contracts and the processes and rules that come with them make this already-difficult issue exponentially more burdensome. You lose flexibility and the direct connection to your employees on critical issues. We have more experience and better experience than anyone in setting that relationship right. Sometimes that means spending time negotiating instead of just encouraging you to interest arbitrate every contract cycle. Sometimes it means helping you understand how to win grievances and curtail or eliminate past practices. Whatever the circumstance, we have the experience, capacity, and personal touch needed to improve your labor relations.
