We provide advice and support to help employers manage their relationships with trade unions, staff associations and other representative bodies.
Our clients include major corporates in the retail, leisure and financial services sectors, public bodies and educational establishments.
We advise on the drafting and interpretation of recognition and collective agreements and industrial action procedures. We advise on applications for statutory recognition, and under the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations. Our team also has experience dealing with collective disputes, from injunctions to class actions, in the employment tribunal.
We understand the importance of maintaining a constructive relationship with staff and unions and help clients to achieve this as a priority. Our practical experience in this area of employment relations, which relatively few law firms can offer, puts us in a great position to help.
