Miller Canfield is a titan in the traditional labor relations arena. We're rated by U.S. News and World Report/Best Lawyers as one of the top law firms in the nation for Labor Law. We represent both companies and public entities, including school districts, with issues involving their employees' unions throughout the country, including:

  • Collective bargaining negotiation
  • Regulatory proceedings, including the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and its state equivalents
  • Strikes and lockouts
  • Union election campaigns
  • Grievance and contract administration
  • NLRB/state regulatory agency elections
  • Arbitrations
  • Contract modification/renegotiation under emergency management or bankruptcy
  • Retiree health care litigation

We offer support in whatever role our client wants us to play, whether it's as chief spokesperson, bargaining team members or simply to be around-the-clock resource during contract negotiations. We have extensive experience defending clients' interests facing unfair labor practice charges, or prosecuting secondary boycott allegations against a union before the NLRB.
