Employment Law & HR Support
We work with many unionised businesses and have extensive experience of drafting, negotiating and interpreting collective agreements and consultation agreements i.e. agreements which are short of full recognition.
We also have extensive experience of collective pay bargaining and with dealing with threats of industrial action.
We assist businesses with their trade union recognition strategy and with any compulsory recognition applications to the Central Arbitration Committee.
We often find that employers are unclear on when and where they can draw the line with unions and union representatives or what an employer can and cannot demand in return. We work with employers to help them understand what a union can and cannot demand ensuring that union relations are handled in an effective manner.
