McMillan's Employment and Labour Relations Group provides advice to companies on all aspects of labour relations, from a union's initial efforts to organize a company's employees through to the negotiation of collective agreements and dispute resolution.
Our lawyers have assisted clients with certification applications, collective agreement negotiations and strike and lockouts, including drafting communications on the employer's behalf and securing injunctive relief where required.
We regularly provide advice on collective agreement interpretation, including the management of layoffs, job posting disputes and benefit issues. Our lawyers are experienced advocates at arbitrations and before labour relations tribunals and can assist clients in either reaching a resolution through the mediation process or in advocating our client's position through the arbitration process.
