Managing Union Relations and Industrial Action

Identifying potential problems and resolving industrial action

Industrial action has the potential to cause serious disruption to a business.

Ideally, a business needs to be able to identify when disputes are likely to occur and, if an industrial action arises, to access a legal team with experience in minimising its impact. It is important, when a dispute occurs, to be able to resolve it as quickly as possible.
