FLRA Seeks Input on Draft Negotiability-Training Materials (April 22, 2013)

The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) has developed draft negotiability-training materials – specifically, a Guide to Negotiability Under the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and an accompanying slide presentation.
