FSIP Announces Web-Based Interactive Training on Federal Sector Impasse Resolution (August 2, 2012)

The Federal Service Impasses Panel (FSIP) of the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) is pleased to announce that its web-based interactive basic training on Federal sector impasse resolution under the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (Statute) is now available on the FLRA’s Training & ADR page.  The training is a comprehensive three-lesson course on the processes and procedures of the FSIP that is intended, among other things, to introduce Federal employees, managers, and unions to the FSIP’s organization as an entity within the FLRA; explain how FSIP decides whether or not to assert jurisdiction over requests for its assistance; and provide information on the procedures the FSIP uses in resolving impasses, and the factors that are considered in selecting a specific procedure to resolve an impasse.  According to FSIP Chairman Mary Jacksteit, the training is another example of the FLRA’s efforts to provide the Federal labor-management community with comprehensive resource and training materials to assist them in promoting cooperative labor-management relations that comply with the mandates of the Statute.   To view the full announcement, click here.
