The labor relations law established a procedure by which employees,
unions, and agencies can complain of and obtain correction of violations of
the law. Such violations are called unfair labor practices and are filed
with the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA). And if an unfair labor
practice – ULP for short – is found, a remedy can be ordered to repair
whatever harm was caused by the violation.
If a union felt that management had made a change affecting bargaining unit employees without allowing the union a chance to bargain, it could file a charge with the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).
Failure to notify the union of a change in a condition of employment for one or more bargaining unit employees is an unfair labor (i.e., Failure to notify the union that you were changing Jane Does work schedule could result in an unfair labor practice).
