Industrial relations

De Luca & Partners has a unique (and widely recognized) experience in the field of trade union relations, founded with its Founder and President, Vincenzo De Luca, who since the ’60s and ’70s has personally participated in the history of Italian trade unions, assisting the major operators of national entrepreneurship and multinationals since their appearance in the production sector of our country.

The specific skills and abilities of the Founder together with those developed over the years of experience by Partners and Associates, have made De Luca & Partners one of the main references in the field. 

The assistance provided by De Luca & Partners (daily involved in complex operations in which trade union relations play a central and decisive role) is not so limited to technical aspects, but goes as far as defining and deciding on strategic choices and direct confrontation with trade unions, in the management of collective labour problems and increasingly, due to the current recessionary conditions, in the analysis of real scenarios of social emergency. 

De Luca & Partners focuses on the loyalty and seriousness of the confrontation and on the extreme correctness in the relationships with the counterparts, as necessary conditions to allow the achievement of the contractual objectives identified with the customer.

De Luca & Partners has always been regularly involved in the reorganization and restructuring of companies and directly involved in related industrial relations, providing regular assistance and advice to national and international clients on all aspects related to restructuring procedures, such as:

  • the definitions of responsibilities;
  • negotiations with the trade unions;
  • relations with public bodies (Ministry of Labour, Regions, etc.);
  • formalising the sale;
  • application of social security benefits (ee: redundancy fund).

Partners and Associates have always assisted their clients:

  • in union negotiations, when requested and
  • negotiating and entering into trade union agreements aimed at increasing the competitiveness of the company.

Assistance with staff reduction and restructuring procedures accounts for over 30% of our business.

De Luca & Partners’ lawyers have assisted clients in more than 350 small and large restructuring operations

In all cases, an agreement was reached with the trade unions and no disputes arose with any of the workers involved.
