Unions employ staff, engage law firms, and have active stewards/members to address the daunting tasks of collective bargaining and union representation in today’s economy. Labor Union Consultants (LUC) is available as a resource for unions to deal with specific projects, to develop an overall strategic plan, and to provide alternatives where problems persist. When union financial resources are constrained, use of effective consultants such as LUC are a means of taking action without the long-term financial commitment of hiring more staff.
