Experienced Labor Law Guidance For Employers
Few employment law attorneys have in-depth knowledge of traditional labor law, including the unique substantive and procedural rules of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). At Rediger Labor Law, we do. Labor law is a major focus of our practice. For decades, we have helped California employers navigate its nuances with precision and skill.
Employers in diverse industries turn to us for guidance on labor law issues such as:
- National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proceedings: Our attorneys have countered union organizing campaigns for our clients, litigated matters pertaining to NLRB representation elections and defended employers accused of committing unfair labor practices (ULPs) in hearings before the NLRB and on petitions to review filed with the federal appellate courts.
- Labor arbitration: Many unionized employers have collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) with labor organizations that mandate binding labor arbitration for all disputes. Our lawyers have extensive experience representing employers before labor arbitrators. We are familiar with issues such as the arbitrability of a grievance, contract interpretation, and discharge and discipline.
- Union-affiliated trust funds: Many CBAs require employers to remit contributions on behalf of covered employees to union-affiliated Taft-Hartley trust funds. When audits uncover alleged shortfalls in those contributions, we stand up for employers, defending them in federal court. several of our efforts have resulted in several published decisions favorable to unionized employers.
- Collective bargaining negotiations: Attorneys of our firm have negotiated numerous CBAs over the years, including the first multi-employer CBA with the SEIU covering security officers in the Bay Area, a multi-employer CBA with the Teamsters Union covering parking attendants in San Francisco, the first multi-employer CBA with the SEIU covering security officers in Los Angeles, and CBAs on behalf of several major hospitals in California.
- Strikes, picketing and boycotts: We provide advice to employers regarding proactive and defensive options available to them in the event that they become targets of these tactics.
Are Your Employees Attempting To Organize?

We have also represented employers at NLRB elections, in trials before the NLRB and in petitions to review adverse NLRB decisions in federal courts of appeal.
