In representing management exclusively, the Firm has negotiated with public and private sector unions across New Jersey with bargaining units as diverse as police and fire units, secondary and elementary principals, teachers, college professors, principals, administrators and support staff.
AG&L provides comprehensive labor and employment law services in both traditional and non-traditional areas to its clients. The firm’s practice is concentrated in representing private and public sector management in labor and employment law matters and related litigation. Public sector clients include school districts and school boards as well as colleges and universities. Private sector clients include transportation, technology, private education and health care companies.
The areas in which the firm provides labor and employment law services include, but are not limited to, collective bargaining, interest and grievance arbitration, family and medical leave matters, discrimination proceedings, NLRB and state labor board matters, wage and hour claims, civil service matters and state and federal litigation. The firm also provides advice, counseling and opinions on a wide variety of labor and employment law matters, as well as training seminars for management personnel.
The AG&L process in preparing for negotiations includes a thorough review of the existing collective bargaining agreement and an understanding from management of any concern about specific provisions during the current and previous contracts. AG&L also believes that management rights should be preserved at all costs, and we can aggressively litigate to defend an employer’s authority to implement reasonable rules and regulations.
