Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS)

When an agency and union have negotiated over a particular subject and have reached an impasse, the Statute provides a mechanism to resolve their impasse. First, the parties must seek mediation assistance from a third party, such as the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS-Agency) in an attempt to informally resolve the matter.
