Unions & Collective Agreements

Unions & Collective Agreements

Whilst there are few law firms with in-depth experience of industrial relations and collective agreements, Outset bucks the trend, advising both public and private sector organisations.

Whether the organisational challenge is:

  • a CAC application for statutory recognition and collective bargaining
  • a threat of industrial action or ballot
  • a de-recognition process
  • the dismissal of a union official
  • the negotiation or interpretation of a collective agreement
  • the status of recognition and collective bargaining agreements after a TUPE transfer
  • the establishment and operation of a domestic or European works council
  • a dispute under the I&C Regulations.

As well as its experience in representing employers and guiding them through the challenging legislative and regulatory framework, Outset provides consultancy on shaping, developing and implementing industrial relations strategy.
