In yesterday’s e-Bulletin, NTEU shared our support for the 10 members named by President Biden to the Federal Service Impasses Panel (FSIP).
The panel is a component of the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) tasked with resolving bargaining impasses between unions and federal agencies. The appointees’ experience in federal labor-management relations makes them well-qualified for their role in reaching fair resolutions to bargaining impasses.
In February, President Biden demanded the resignation of the 10 former panel members, all of whom were appointed by the previous administration and were notorious for siding against unions at almost every turn.
“The FSIP was in dire need of objective labor relations professionals and this new list of appointees meets that standard," said National President Tony Reardon. "We look forward to the FSIP returning to its role as a neutral mediator in federal sector bargaining, just as Congress intended.”
