FLRA'S GENERAL COUNSEL INVITES CUSTOMERS TO COMMENT ON PROPOSED REVISIONS TO INVESTIGATORY UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES REGULATIONS

The General Counsel of the Federal Labor Relations Authority, Joe Swerdzewski, announced a Federal Register notice of proposed rulemaking (63 FR 45013-45019) to revise the regulations regarding the prevention, resolution, and investigation of unfair labor practice (ULP) disputes.In addition, the General Counsel announced a series of eight meetings across the country to solicit input on these proposed regulations from the FLRA's customers.

The General Counsel's proposed regulations are part of the FLRA's initiative to facilitate dispute resolution and to simply, clarify, and improve the processing of ULP charges. These proposed regulations complement ULP regulations enacted in July 1997 that addressed the processing of ULP complaints by the Authority. Both sets of ULP regulations support the FLRA's agency-wide collaboration and alternative dispute resolution initiative to assist labor and management parties in developing dispute resolution services
