Industrial Relations

At Hamlins we understand the need to resolve industrial disputes swiftly and effectively. We appreciate tha if mishandled, an employment dispute could bring your business to a halt, eat up valuable time and resources, and sour employment relations for years to come. That’s why we act rapidly to assist with:

  • Emergency action and intervention in response to balloting, picketing, unofficial/official industrial action
  • Emergency injunction applications
  • Reviews of collective agreements and assistance in using agreed collective procedures to resolve disputes without resorting to industrial action
  • Directly or indirectly negotiating with trade unions from local to executive level

We can also anticipate changes in your labour requirements that may have an impact on your labour relations and devise an early strategy for consulting with unions/employee representatives to secure cooperation with the relevant proposals.
