Grievance arbitration is an intrinsic part of any healthy industrial relationship. Disputes in the unionized context should, and do, occur. They frequently revolve around discipline and discharge, entitlement to payments for overtime or vacation, and job competition/selection processes.
At Vey Willetts LLP, we assist employers in the proactive navigation of the grievance process. We understand the ongoing relationship between the parties, and the importance of striking the right balance between cooperation and principle. We are also sensitive to the reality of fiscal constraint and will help ensure you do not sacrifice bargained positions at the expense of convenient resolution.
