National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)

Making sure employers are fully protected and prepared when navigating National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issues is job one for our lawyers. We have helped employers win organizing drives against virtually every union in nearly every state across the country, defeated hundreds of unfair labor practice charges, trained and advised employers on how to avoid committing unfair labor practices and argued before the NLRB to resist changes in the law that would unfairly disadvantage employers.

Whether it's union organizing, unfair labor practice charges or responding to a labor union, Barnes & Thornburg's labor department has years of experience helping employers navigate the NLRB minefield. And the minefield is becoming more dangerous; unions are winning NLRB elections at record rates, the NLRB is changing the rules to make it easier for unions to organize and the law is constantly changing.
