Collective bargaining agreements touch many lives and affect many people’s livelihoods. The attorneys in Holm & O’Hara LLP’s labor practice collaborate closely with our union clients, their business managers and members in a broad spectrum of areas to protect and advance their interests. Our involvement can start as early as the initial representation elections, continues through contract negotiations and proceeds through an array of legal and operational matters. A key area of our practice is protecting our clients from unscrupulous or careless employers who attempt to circumvent their obligations. When necessary, we fight on our clients’ behalf in several venues. We also work creatively to develop and improve procedures so that payments are made faster, compliance is monitored more efficiently, and enforcement of agreements can be done with less effort.
