Union Training

Nemeth Law, P.C. is in the unique position of being able to offer union training from attorneys who have worked on both sides of the table. The firm has attorneys who were previously employed by the SEIU, the UAW and a union-side labor law firm. We know the issues unions pursue and tactics they employ to gain an advantage in the workplace; we understand pattern bargaining and how unions approach change across a broad spectrum of bargained contracts. Equally important, the Nemeth Law team knows from hands-on experience what employers can and cannot do when dealing in a union environment. We can train your supervisors and management team on critical human resource topics that involve unions.
