THE FEDERAL SERVICE IMPASSES PANELThe
Federal Service Impasses Panel is the last step in federal sector
collective bargaining -- the substitute for the strike and lockout in the
private sector. Many of the negotiation impasses brought to the Panel are
successfully settled with Panel assistance. If, however, an impasse is not
voluntarily settled, the Panel takes final action which may include
directing the parties to another procedure or imposing settlement terms.
These typically occur through the issuance of a "Decision and Order" if
the impasse was considered by the Panel as a whole, or an "Opinion and
Decision", if a Panel Member or staff person was designated to help
resolve the dispute. Below are both of these final actions.
