The Frantz Ward Labor & Employment Practice Group
represent national, regional, and local employers in the full spectrum of traditional and emerging labor law issues. Members of the group counsel our non-union clients on how to retain their status, and routinely represent employers in union organizing campaigns and unfair labor practice proceedings before the NLRB. We also negotiate collective bargaining agreements and are well-versed in the issues that arise in the bargaining process. Additionally, we advise clients on contract interpretation issues and represent many clients in arbitration proceedings under collective bargaining agreements.
