NYPD union plans to seek contract arbitration proceedings

In New York, unions are a critical part of ensuring that workers receive all the benefits they are entitled. That includes health care, a fair wage, coverage if there are injuries on the job, retirement benefits and much more. This can be problematic if there is an employer who is seeking to save money or deprive workers of their rights under labor law. When issues arise, there are certain steps that a union can take, such as grievance mediation, arbitration proceedings and other strategies related to collective bargaining. Having a law firm that is experienced in union representation is essential in these and other matters related to labor law.
