All collective bargaining require a previous and effectively planned strategy to be followed to ensure that the final agreement responds to the operational necessities of the company and adjusts to its economic realities. For more than thirty (30) years, the members of our team have negotiated collective bargaining agreements with most of the local and national labor unions. They have collectively bargained with United Auto Workers, Steelworkers of America, Teamsters, Gastronomical Union, Unión General de Trabajadores, and Unidad Laboral de Enfermeras(os) y Empleados de la Salud, among many others. Both in the public sector and private sector.
During the stage prior to negotiation, we work closely with the supervisors and the company's personnel to identify the different provisions that must be included in the Collective Bargaining Agreement to make the company's operations more efficient and flexible. Likewise, in the negotiation stage, strategies are developed with the purpose of assuring that the process is carried out in favor of the company and culminate in a fair contract for all the parties involved. Supposing that the union chooses to exercise its right to make strikes or pickets, a practical and legal operational plan is developed to minimize any adverse effects on the operations.
