FLRA Announces Negotiability Training (July 9, 2013)

The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) announced today the first set of 1-day sessions of its new negotiability-training program. The training sessions follow the recent issuance of the Guide to Negotiability Under the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute, and are another step in the FLRA’s efforts to inform the labor-management community about the negotiability process and relevant legal principles. The training sessions will address: (1) negotiability terms and concepts; (2) the negotiability process; (3) the bases for dismissing negotiability petitions; and (4) some substantive issues that frequently arise in negotiability cases, including management rights.
