Nemeth Bonnette Brouwer, P.C. partners with public employers involved in Act 312 arbitrations, keeping the financial goals of the employer in mind to achieve favorable terms and conditions in areas such as pension costs, wages and health care contributions and coverage.
Working on behalf of public employers and with the mediator, Nemeth Bonnette Brouwer aims to reach an agreement on the contract in the fact-finding process in order to avoid arbitration when not in the employer’s best interest. When Act 312 arbitration is required, we represent the employer at arbitration and help it determine and present its last best offer prior to engaging in the arbitral process. Nemeth Bonnette Brouwer also presents evidence on the employer’s behalf to support the proposed terms for inclusion into the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
