IFPTE Joins Labor Effort to Protect FLRA

This week IFPTE was one of twenty labor organizations that signed a letter to Hill lawmakers urging Congress to step in to protect the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) from reckless and irresponsible efforts to close two of their seven field offices.

The FLRA is a small but critically important government agency that is tasked with administering federal labor-management relations, including defining the appropriateness of collective bargaining units, resolving unfair federal labor practice (ULP) complaints, reconciling negotiations impasses between unions and management, and adjudicating exceptions to arbitrators awards, among other functions.

The letter urges lawmakers to seek a GAO study on the impact the closures would have on the FLRA’s ability to perform its mission, and, “urge the Congress to include in the FY18 Omnibus a provision explicitly preventing the FLRA from closing the offices.”
