Staying Union-Free

In order to assist companies in their efforts to stay union-free, PMP performs audits to identify areas of vulnerability.  We also work with you to form a strategy to defeat or impede union organizing attempts. PMP will provide you with representation at the Labor Board when a petition is filed and develop a campaign to defeat the union in an election.


Living with a Union

Unions can be expensive and time consuming to deal with. But very often good labor relations can result in a cooperative environment that allows the company to run its business efficiently and effectively and generates a cooperative atmosphere. PMP has years of experience in helping companies establish and maintain a non-adversarial labor management environment.


Unfair Labor Practices (ULPs)

Avoid unfair labor practice (ULP) charges by letting PMP review your policies and train your supervisors.  When an unfair labor practice charge is filed, we provide top-notch representation and defense at the National Labor Relations Board.


Collective Bargaining/Negotiations

Union negotiations and collective bargaining requires detailed preparation, strategizing, and insight. For over fifty years, PMP has assisted management in achieving goals and keeping costs down as chief spokesperson in their union negotiations.


Grievances and Arbitrations

PMP prepares the initial response to a grievance and follows through with the preparation of witnesses and a defense in an arbitration. Our half-century of hands-on experience with unions and union contracts help us deal effectively with your grievance and procedure and arbitration hearings.
