A Guide to FLRA Law and Practice

Written by Peter Broida, an expert in labor relations and longtime representative of agencies, unions and employees, the FLRA Guide is the standard reference on federal sector collective bargaining law and case law of the Federal Labor Relations Authority and its reviewing courts. This treatise tracks the Authority's unique role in labor relations examining the considerable complexities of negotiability, jurisdiction over federal-sector arbitration awards, collective bargaining requirements and unfair labor practice theory and remedies, as well as unit recognition, and the limitations of judicial review. It is updated annually with the most recent decisions and procedural revisions of the Authority and the courts.
