Union Avoidance, Union Negotiations and Contract Disputes

Gardere lawyers stay in-the-know on the latest developments from the National Labor Relations Board and regularly provide union avoidance training to avoid any type of organizational activity. Additionally, we have successfully conducted negotiations union organizations such as:

  • Teamsters

  • Carpenters
  • Stage hands, decorators
  • Glaziers, patternmakers
  • International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
  • Service Employees International Union

Our team has developed comprehensive labor relations programs, including multimedia presentations, for use with supervisors and employees, and in response to union organizational campaigns. When labor trouble strikes in the form of picketing or work stoppages, we can assist companies with contingency plans, restraining orders, damage litigation and dispute resolution. We provide advice and counseling to both union and non-unionized workforces in handling matters with an emboldened National Labor Relations Board, as well as efforts to avoid unfair labor practices.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
