Labor law is the area of law which covers all aspects of the legal relationship between employers and employee labor unions. For federal employees, the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute found at 5 U.S.C. §§ 7101-7135 allows federal employees to organize, to bargain collectively, and to participate through labor organizations of their choice in decisions affecting their working lives.
The FSLMRS lists and explains the rights of employees, labor organizations, and agencies. These rights are often overseen by the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA). Specifically, the FLRA is responsible for:
- Resolving complaints of unfair labor practices (ULPs)
- Determining the appropriateness of units for union representation
- Issuing decisions on the appeal of arbitration awards
- Issuing decisions on a union and agency’s duty to bargain
- Resolving negotiations which have reached impasse
