THE AUTHORITY INVITES CUSTOMER INPUT ON REPRESENTATION ISSUES

The Federal Labor Relations Authority is inviting customer input on a series of significant representation issues arising in several cases currently pending before the Authority:

.

. 
 

Division of Military and Naval Affairs (New York National Guard), Latham, New York, Case No. BN-RO-40060: This case raises legal issues of first impression concerning how the Authority should determine whether a labor organization is eligible to be accorded exclusive recognition under section 7111(f)(1) of the Federal Service Labor Management Relations Statute.

Department of Navy, Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, Case Nos. WA-CU-50061, WA-CU-50062 and SF-CU-50071: These cases also raise issues of first impression concerning how the Authority should address representation issues arising from a reorganization when both successorship and accretion principles are claimed to apply to the same employees.

Interested persons are asked to answer several specific questions about these issues, which are set forth in a "Notice of Opportunity to Submit Amici Curiae Briefs" scheduled for publication in the July 5, 1996 Federal Register. Briefs must be filed by the close of business on July 24, 1996. For additional information, contact James H. Adams, Acting Director, Case Control Office, Federal Labor Relations Authority, (202) 482-6540.

The Federal Labor Relations Authority is an independent agency that administers the labor-management relations program for over 1.9 million federal employees world-wide. The Authority is the three-Member quasi-judicial panel of the FLRA which resolves representation cases concerning union elections and bargaining unit determinations.
