    The Chicago Regional Office of the Federal Labor Relations Authority offers this training to parties involved in “change bargaining” under the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute.  Concepts we will address include:

    • What is a condition of employment?
    • What is sufficient impact to require bargaining?
    • What sort of notice is required?
    • What is the difference between substantive bargaining and I&I bargaining?
    • What is the Authority’s “Covered By Doctrine”?
    • How does the Regional Office investigate a “change” case?
