Civilian Personnel Advisory Center- Labor Relations

Partners in Service, Helping Leaders Meet the Mission

Welcome to the Labor-Management Relations Page.

5 U.S.C Chapter 71 governs the labor-management relations program in the Federal government. The program is based on the Congressional finding that unions and collective bargaining are in the public interest. It prescribes certain rights and obligations of employees, unions, and federal management and established procedures for resolving issues that arise under the program. The program is to be applied consistent with the requirement of an effective and efficient federal government.

Where a union has exclusive recognition, management is obligated to deal with the union, and only the union, regarding the working conditions of employees represented by the union. Such dealings, which must occur before management changes working conditions of these employees, may occur in the context of collective bargaining or labor-management partnership arrangements.

Management must notify these unions before it makes substantive, significant changes in the working conditions of civilian employees represented by these unions and give the unions an opportunity to provide their views on the changes. Management must consider any union comments and respond to those unions providing comments.
