Employer’s declaration of impasse on successor collective bargaining agreement, even though the parties had not bargained over the employer’s initial proposal, did not indicate bad faith because the parties were already at impasse over salary and health benefits in re-opener negotiations and declaration was intended to move negotiations forward by invoking EERA impasse procedures. Even if impasse declaration indicated bad faith, charge failed to allege other indicators of bad faith bargaining.
