Texas Public Sector Labor Relations

Promoting Successful Relations and Resolutions

Traditionally, the negotiation process between public agencies and labor unions is often adversarial and suspicious. The law firm of Denton Navarro Rocha Bernal Hyde & Zech, P.C., provides a different approach to collective bargaining, employment law and labor relations in the public sector. Our thorough knowledge of employment law and our dedication to finding solutions that benefit everyone usually results in more harmonious negotiations.

Our highly experienced lawyers represent government entities and employers in a broad spectrum of legal concerns, including matters relating to:

  • Labor negotiations
  • Employee wage and benefits disputes
  • Contract grievances and arbitrations
  • Misconduct and internal affairs investigations
  • Disciplinary appeals and evidentiary hearings
  • Claims of employment discrimination, wrongful termination, whistleblower retaliation, sexual harassment, etc.

Providing Proactive Legal Counsel

At Denton Navarro Rocha Bernal Hyde & Zech, P.C., we are not merely attorneys; we are also counselors at law. This means that we take proactive measures to help clients avoid future problems and conflicts. When a municipality retains our firm in a harassment suit, for instance, we not only handle the current lawsuit but we also educate the client on how to understand the situation's subtext and meet any similar challenges in a more effective manner.

In addition to labor relations and negotiations, we provide civil litigation to state and federal agencies as well as general and special counsel assistance to clients throughout South Texas. From our offices in San Antonio, Harlingen and Austin, we serve the municipalities across Texas such as Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, Waco, Brownsville, Weslaco and throughout the Rio Grande Valley.
