Collective bargaining

DIALOGUE IS 80% OF THE SOLUTION

THE OTHER 20% COULD BE LUCK OR PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE.


Our experience after years of collective bargaining has taught us that dialogue and negotiation is 80% of the solution when it comes to labor law.

Without dialogue, the solution lies in arbitration or in a court, leaving the solution in the hands of luck, in the hands of those who have the professional experience to build a defense, or in the hands of those who judge the case.

Moreover, the interpretation of collective bargaining is very case-specific, meaning that each case is different depending on the facts or the way the agreements are drafted.

OUR STRENGTHS:

  • We have intervened in all types of companies and sectors, as well as before various types of committees or workers' representatives.
  • We are mediators and conciliators at the The Catalan Labor Court.
  • We have expert lawyers trained as mediators (more information about company mediation via this link).
  • We advise on matters that we know how to defend before courts and tribunals if necessary.

EXPERT EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS FOR REDUNDANCIES:

We have dealt with a diverse range of company crises in which we have had to tackle redundancies, initiate collective negotiations with deputies and trade unions in order to come to agreements, organise collective dismissals, etc. Strategy and formalities are very important under Spanish Law in order to ensure that any dismissals are not declared null by the Court, which would provoke a court ruling requiring the reinstatement of employees and the payment of their salaries since their dismissal.
