Traditional Labor Relations

An employer’s non-union status, including the right to deal directly with employees without third-party interference, is a company asset that deserves protection. Avoiding unions and winning elections are particularly delicate and complex undertakings that require experience, knowledge, and a proven track record. Employers who must deal with collective bargaining agreements, union grievances, and threats of strikes face complex challenges that require experienced judgment, sophistication, and highly specialized skill.

We’ve successfully negotiated hundreds of collective bargaining agreements, won numerous arbitration hearings, and efficiently resolved work stoppages with all the major labor organizations. We have achieved these outcomes for clients in the private and public sectors.  We can do the same for you. We can represent you before the National Labor Relations Board, Federal Labor Relations Authority, Railway Labor Board, Michigan Employment Relations Commission, and all state and federal courts on issues related to:

  • Collective bargaining
  • Grievance and arbitration
  • Union decertification and avoidance
  • Labor-management relations
  • Unfair labor practices
  • Plant closings/mass layoffs
  • Strikes, picketing, and handbilling
  • Lockouts and injunctions

We left the ‘big firm’ for the Masud Labor Law Group 25 years ago. Since that time we have had a favorable outcome in all of our litigation and arbitrations. The Masud Labor Law Group has kept the unions out of our non-union locations while preserving and protecting our management rights at the bargaining table at our unionized facilities. – D.J. Bortz, Jr. President/CEO Bortz Health Care
