If you want to be a highly skilled negotiator–or just avoid being taken to the cleaners in a bargaining relationship–you had better know about the many, many points in the bargaining process where the law can give a party a tactical edge or an impenetrable defensive shield. There are over 70 of them as you can see in this link to the table of contents  of a book entitled, COLLECTIVE BARGAINING LAW FOR THE FEDERAL SECTOR. It was written ten years ago to focus on the absolutely critical excerpts of FLRA decisions over 30 years that still form the core of the law.  All of the dicta has been stripped away so that you can see the key holding of the case in a minimum amount of time.  (Yes, the Trump Administration folks are trying to dump a chunk of those precedents, but the odds are they will fail based on how often the federal courts have overturned their decisions.) Dewey Publishing has cut the price down to $38.50.  If you are interested, go to this Dewey web site and search on the word “Ferris.”  That should bring you right to the book.

    I’ve always wanted to point out that this book should be read and understood before delving into Broida. This is the precursor and Broida is the support. This should be mandatory reading for Labor Relations Specialist and negotiators! The largest union representing federal employees tried to ban the book being read because another union tried to slip in and organize TSA after the large union had invested significant funds in organizing. I had to be the town crier to get the labor relations specialist to purchase the book because I wouldn’t share mine! Excellent book folks!
