We represent aviation employers every day. Our people worked in the aviation industry. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing your industry. As a service industry your people make or break your organization. We have over twenty years of experience working with union and non-union aviation clients identifying and mitigating employee and union risk.

Need to ensure compliance with labour laws?

We work with you to ensure your employment policies, practices and agreements are compliant and identify opportunities to reduce liability and cost.

Want to stay non-union?

We work with you to take away employee motivation to consider unionization.  If you are expanding, by acquisition or internal growth, you will be on the union radar.  Unions want to grow just like you do.  We make sure your growth doesn’t make you a target.

Already unionized?

With a properly crafted and executed LR strategy, unionized employers can thrive in this sector. We work with you to achieve success at the bargaining table, whether as negotiator or backroom advisor.

Need to restructure?

Whether you are a union or non-union employer, together we carefully plan and execute workforce restructuring initiatives that minimize financial, organizational and reputational cost.

Need to part ways with an underperforming employee?

We understand SMS, non-punitive reporting systems and just culture workplaces. These do not have to be a barrier to managing performance and exiting union and non-union employees who are not meeting standards.

Ex-employee or union taking legal action against you?

Whether in wrongful or unjust dismissal litigation, arbitration, labour board proceedings, human rights matters, WCB claims or health and safety prosecution, we vigorously defend our aviation clients.  We do so in a cost effective manner ever mindful of your short and long term interests.


Employee/union due diligence is critical to successful growth through acquisition. We help you identify and mitigate successor rights for both union and non-union employees.

Need to improve management skills?

We craft and deliver training to help your people be more effective and your organization legally compliant.

Of course we are much more than this. Whether you are a union or non-union employer think of us as your trusted advisor navigating the workplace relationship from employee onboard to departure.
