A premature, unfounded, or insincere declaration of impasse may serve as evidence of bad-faith in support of a surface bargaining allegation. Facts indicating that a party has rushed to impasse may include the number of times the parties met and the number of proposals exchanged, the number of matters agreed to both before the first declaration of impasse and during any mediated negotiations, as well as any significant concessions offered or agreed to before the respondent's "final" or "second" declaration of impasse.
