For nearly 50 years, Schwartz Edelstein Law Group has been actively involved and developed a particular expertise in the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements, including those for public school districts. The Firm’s experience in this area extends to all aspects of the negotiation process, from analyzing existing agreements, goal setting, developing proposals to analysis of union proposals, drafting counter-proposals, and “at-the-table” negotiations. We also counsel our clients regarding the various employee job actions that can accompany collective negotiations. For those clients who have determined that such an approach would be appropriate, we have formulated and utilized collective bargaining techniques.
Schwartz Edelstein takes great pride in having successfully negotiated many collective bargaining agreements for its clients. Of course, when necessary the Firm can also call on its extensive experience in fact finding and mediation.
The skill of the Firm’s negotiators, combined with their in-depth familiarity with the myriad issues facing Boards of Education in the 21st Century, makes Schwartz Edelstein Law Group the ideal choice for collective negotiations.
