Federal Manager's Daily Report

The FLRA has reestablished its Collaboration and Alternative Dispute Resolution Office, in the first major change in the agency’s direction since President Biden’s appointment of Democratic member Ernest DuBester as chairman.

“CADRO is once again available to the federal sector labor-management community to help voluntarily resolve FLRA cases, especially negotiability cases and arbitration exceptions pending before the Authority, as well as unfair labor practice cases pending before FLRA administrative law judges,” the agency said.

It said that participation in the program results in 80-90 percent of disputes being resolved rather that litigated, resulting in savings of time and cost to both parties.

“CADRO also will once again offer high-quality training and facilitation services to help agencies and labor organizations more effectively prevent and manage conflicts that otherwise could erupt into litigation before the FLRA,” it said.
