Hello, Kevin Lowry here. Not long ago, I retired as Deputy Chief of Police of the Nassau County Police Department, an agency of several thousand sworn personnel on Long Island, just outside New York City. I am also a licensed attorney and have been for many years. In the final portion of my tenure with the Nassau County PD, I represented management in its labor relations work and other personnel matters. Today, I assist Thomas & Means with those same kinds of things. It has been a number of years since I first became aware of this firm and the quality of what they do. I am now part of their team. Our services include:

  • Review of your labor relations practices.
  • Identification of strengths and weaknesses.
  • Recommendations for improvements.
  • Consulting as to specific labor relations issues.
  • Actual involvement in the collective bargaining and negotiation processes.
  • Arbitration services.

Ideally, our labor relations work would not enlarge the perceived divide between “us” and “them.” There are “win-wins” to be had. But management shouldn’t bargain away its considerable, critical prerogatives. If it has already done so, there are ways to get them back. This is what we do. Our ABLE team has vast experience in these matters, in all sizes and types of agencies, and in all regions of the country.
