Labor Law

Collective bargaining. Contract negotiation. Labor law demands a comprehensive understanding of existing case law, complex group dynamics and negotiating tactics. Unnecessary conflicts and concessions can cost companies dearly.

Skelton Taintor & Abbott is one of central Maine’s largest management firms and our top-ranked labor law attorneys know the rules, how to best defend our clients’ rights, and how to keep labor relations productive and rewarding for everyone involved. We help clients make sound management decisions and successfully defend those decisions whenever and wherever they are challenged.

Public and private employers across New England rely on the ST&A labor law team to:

  • Draft, interpret, and negotiate collective bargaining contracts that protect our clients
  • Advocate aggressively for their interests in collective bargaining disputes and in the courts
  • Provide effective mediation, fact finding, and arbitration services when grievances arise

We have built our reputation through successful labor law cases from Kittery to Fort Kent. Our central location on Auburn, Maine’s historic riverfront keeps us close to the clients we serve and keeps the cost of our premium services lower than comparable firms.
