As Australia's leading trade union and labour movement law firm, Slater & Gordon has a proud history of supporting trade unions to defend workers’ rights.
In an industrial climate where union rights are increasingly under threat, our Industrial and Employment Practice group handles all types of legal and strategic matters which trade unions need to deal with such as:
- Industrial disputes and litigation
- Award, certified agreement negotiation and enforcement
- Internal rules issues
The work of our Industrial and Employment practice group is complemented by a dedicated Union Services team that ensures the delivery of prompt legal advice and information to members of unions that Slater & Gordon represents. Our firm is retained by many trade unions and through this association, our client unions are able to offer their members access to a wide range of free and discounted legal services.
Slater & Gordon’s Industrial and Employment Practice group also handles employment-related issues for members of unions that we represent, such as:
- Unfair dismissal
- Equal opportunity, discrimination and sexual harassment cases
Members of our client unions who need advice about employment-related issues should contact their union which will arrange a referral to Slater & Gordon where necessary.
For further information about how we can help your trade union or union members please contact us either by email or by calling direct on 1800 621 236.
