Joseph Schimansky

Program Description

The lights are off on the Executive Floor at the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is still waiting on new Commissioners. However, despite the lack of a General Counsel the Federal Labor Relations Authority keeps chugging along, releasing numerous significant decisions, most recently three precedent-breaking decisions that will alter the future of collective bargaining in the federal sector. Don’t let yourself fall behind. Join FELTG Instructor Joseph Schimansky, the former Executive Director of the Federal Service Impasses Panel, as he reviews the most recent FLRA decisions and union actions, including decisions undercutting deference to arbitrators regarding procedural arbitrability, past practices, temporary promotions and remedies.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Evaluate the significance of the FLRA’s most recent major policy decisions.
  • Determine which standard to use — “excessive interference” or “abrogation” — when assessing whether an arbitration award violates a management right.
  • Determine whether agencies have an obligation to midterm bargaining.
  • Understand the Authority’s new interpretation of sections 7116(d) and 7131(d) of the Statute.
  • Recognize the significance of the DC Circuit’s reversal of the FLRA’s decision on “conditions of employment” and “working conditions.
