Strike Management & Conflict Resolution

Adelhelm & Associates’ industrial relations consultants will make sure you are prepared for industrial action and will work alongside you to help you manage through the strike action when it happens.

 In addition, Adelhelm & Associates will analyse the strengths and arguments from both parties to prepare your management team for anything that could go wrong, including advice on how to manage your operation during the industrial dispute. Adelhelm & Associates also assists with mediation or facilitation preparation if and when collective bargaining and negotiations break down.


If you are at risk of strike action from organised labour unions, Adelhelm & Associates will assist with:

  • Risk assessment and power analysis of both parties
  • Tactics and strategies to resolve industrial disputes
  • Communications with staff, unions and the media during the conflict
  • The evaluation of settlement options


Contact the team today for a confidential discussion and a practical solution that works for you and your business.

We have engaged A&A on a Services Agreement for many years now. The assistance we receive from them is always timely, pragmatic and specifically tailored to our needs. In addition to general Employment Relations advice and hands-on assistance, having their support and knowledge at the bargaining table enables us to achieve cost-effective Collective Agreements.
