We are skilled in collective bargaining negotiations, grievance arbitrations, mediation and unfair labor practice matters before various forums, including the Illinois Labor Relations Board. In particular, we have frequently been part of our clients’ negotiating teams relative to contract discussions with a variety of public employee bargaining units.
