Labor/Management Relations

Drawing on our experience dealing with labor unions, we counsel clients on labor/management relations, advising on and litigating issues under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and the Railway Labor Act (RLA). We remain at the forefront of the most critical issues employers face in both union and nonunion workplaces. Businesses of all sizes in nearly every industry turn to us for trusted advice on navigating labor-management issues.

Our lawyers practice before all related US federal, state, and local agencies, including the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS), the National Mediation Board (NMB), and the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA). Members of our team routinely provide congressional testimony and commentary on labor-management issues. We represent and support employer coalitions and industry associations in labor-related litigation.

Morgan Lewis has a long tradition of government service, with current and former members of our labor/management relations team having served as members of the NLRB. One of the current NLRB members was a partner in our practice prior to his appointment to the board. Numerous members of our team previously held positions at NLRB regional offices.
