October 8, 2019
  • When engaged in due diligence in a merger and acquisition where there are unionized employees, don't forget to:
  • Review all collective bargaining agreements, letters of agreement, and memorandums of understanding;
  • Obtain a list of all open grievances, pending arbitrations, litigation involving unions, and cases awaiting decisions;
  • Understand the issues with all open grievances, arbitrations, litigation, including potential financial liability; and
  • Meet, if possible with labor leaders so you have a better understanding of their issues and concerns.
