Our EMPLOYMENT team seeks to anticipate potential issues and offers creative, timely and practical solutions to modern workplace issues
Trade Unions and Industrial Relations
With the backdrop of the current economic climate, industrial action is becoming more commonplace.
We work closely with our clients to resolve industrial disputes and provide strategic advice in order to manage any threatened or actual industrial action.
We advise employers on a range of trade union and collective issues. This includes advising on works councils, trade union recognition and employee forum agreements. We also regularly advise on collective consultation exercises, most particularly in redundancy, restructuring and TUPE situations.
Our team also has experience in dealing with applications for injunctions to prevent strikes and other industrial action and union-related employment tribunal claims.
