OGC REPRESENTATION PETITIONS AND PROCEEDINGS
As part of the overall responsibility of administering the labor relations program for all Federal employees, only the FLRA may certify a labor organization to act as the exclusive representative of an appropriate unit of employees for collective bargaining or, thereafter, amend a certification or clarify matters relating to employee representation. The Office of the General Counsel (OGC), through its seven Regional Offices, processes representation petitions and conducts union elections. The three-member Authority resolves appeals of Regional Director Decisions and Orders in representation cases concerning union elections and bargaining unit determinations.
