Schwartz Edelstein Law Group attorneys are experts in management-side labor negotiations. Our attorneys serve as the spokespeople for at-the-table negotiations, provide contract review and analysis, contract administration, analysis of union proposals and drafting counter-proposals. We have also successfully negotiated and settled hundreds of collective bargaining agreements.
We are adept at formulating and implementing unique collaborative bargaining techniques designed to address our clients needs. We frequently participate in mediation, the fact-finding process, and have been highly successful in reducing healthcare costs and enforcing key managerial prerogatives in order to serve our clients’ goals. In addition, should conventional negotiations fail in the police and fire arena, we are also experts in interest arbitration.
Our attorneys regularly attend disciplinary hearings on behalf of the employer and several have also acted as designated Hearing Officer. We also routinely appear before PERC and have defended hundreds of unfair labor practice matters.
