Jeffrey Usher is the founder and owner of Reed Consulting in Matthews, NC. For 30 years, he has consulted on a broad range of Labor and Employee Relations matters with large corporate clients, specializing in issues where hourly workforces are a key to success. With extensive experience dealing with unionized workforces – particularly in contract negotiations and matters surrounding the bargaining process, he has represented major organizations as chief spokesman and legal counsel in negotiations with most major labor unions. [A majority of his negotiating experience has been with the Teamsters and UAW.] At age 32, as Vice President - HR and Labor with Pilot Freight, he was a member of national bargaining and grievance committees. Today, in another client relationship, he regularly deals with Ken Hall, current candidate for Secretary-Treasurer of the Teamsters. He acts as a “strategic partner” helping organizations plan for and implement their own bargaining strategies. Jeff’s approach to negotiations depends largely on open communications and sharing an understanding of the business issues with the bargaining representatives, the workforce, and other stakeholders.
