Collective Negotiations and Labor Relations
SSE&C has particular expertise in the negotiation of agreements between governmental bodies and employee representatives. Our attorneys have successfully negotiated agreements on behalf of counties, municipalities, State authorities and other public entities, for a wide variety of employee units. The firm’s experience in this area extends to all aspects of the negotiation process, from the setting of goals and development of proposals through “at the table” negotiations, mediation, fact-finding, and interest arbitration for police officers and firefighters. SSE&C also counsels its clients regarding the various employee job actions that can accompany collective negotiations.
The Firm also has extensive experience in providing advice on contract interpretation, grievance response, and the trial of grievance arbitration proceedings.
SSE&C takes great pride in having successfully negotiated more than a thousand collective negotiations agreements for its clients. The skill of the firm’s negotiators, combined with their in-depth familiarity with the myriad practical and legal issues facing governmental entities in the 21st century, makes SSE&C the ideal choice for collective negotiations and labor relations issues.
