Annotation: The unfair labor practice process protects the rights given to Federal agency management, employees, and unions by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. The number of unfair labor practice charges has more than doubled since 1978 and is expected to continue to increase.
Abstract: GAO believes that labor-management relationships could be improved and the numer of unfair labor practice charges and their related processing costs could be reduced if more disputes were settled informally. In addition, unfair labor practices can be prevented by assessing the effectiveness of managerial labor relations and by monitoring and evaluating unfair labor practices. (NTIS abstract)
