THE AUTHORITY

The Authority adjudicates disputes arising under the Statute. It decides cases concerning the negotiability of collective bargaining agreement proposals, complaints of unfair labor practices, exceptions to grievance arbitration awards, and appeals from initial determinations of representation petitions. Consistent with its statutory charge to provide leadership in establishing policies and guidance to participants in the federal labor-management relations program, the Authority also assists federal agencies and unions in understanding their rights and responsibilities under the Statute, and actively encourages, through its Collaboration and Alternative Dispute Resolution Program the use of alternative dispute resolution, to allow the parties to resolve their problems without adjudication. The Authority's staff also supports the Foreign Service Labor Relations Board in resolving disputes under the Foreign Service Act of 1980.
