Case Studies / Success Story:
Roger handled a situation where a client planned to acquire the assets of a company whose employees, numbering several hundred, had been on strike for 18 months. Replacement employees had been brought in, but the union was seeking to oust the replacements and return the strikers. Roger’s client was worried about how to handle the competing claims to the jobs after the acquisition. The solution involved the client making job offers to the existing workforce on the client’s terms, and then dealing with the demands of the union. Roger oversaw those negotiations, and helped the client and union create a preferential hiring list that resolved the union’s dispute. Roger also got a dismissal on the unfair labor practice charges filed with the National Labor Relations Board.
A critical part of the successful outcome was to develop a hiring and compensation strategy well in advance, and communicate the terms of employment at or before job offers were actually made.
