Tarter Krinsky & Drogin's client owns and manages a residential apartment building in Brooklyn. Apparently dissatisfied with their existing labor union, the building service employees sought representation from Local 32-BJ, SEIU, AFL-CIO. Believing that the employees should give management a chance to deal with them directly, without any labor union, Labor and Employment Partner Laurent S. Drogin prepared election campaign materials designed to inform the employees of an alternative to unionization. Our client consented to an election that was supervised by the National Labor Relations Board. When the votes were counted, more than 70% of the voters decided to vote against Local 32BJ, meaning that our client is now free to negotiate directly with its employees and operate the property union-free.
