At Moody & Stanford, P.C., our firm routinely represents the interests of employers who work with a unionized workforce.

If employees at your company are beginning to organize a union campaign and explore the possibility of unionize, we offer skilled guidance in how you as a business owner should proceed. It is important that you are represented by a knowledgeable firm, experienced in dealing with these issues. We will help you devise a strategy as well as contingencies for any outcome. Do not threaten to fire or discipline those looking to unionize, but rather focus on preparing yourself for their demands.
In most cases, serious union interest will result in a campaign and election. Through this process, we will advise you as to what you are allowed to do, including handling information and union materials. Employers are greatly restricted during this time, and we can help you avoid any costly violations.
Throughout your interactions with the union, we are available to protect your interests and guide you through each process in a strategic manner.
