While employers are privileged to impose terms and conditions of employment on a prospective basis, they cannot do so retroactively. An employer is not privileged to insist to impasse on a proposal to renegotiate terms settled by a previous agreement, nor to impose terms that take back wages or benefits that have already accrued to employees, even after bargaining in good faith to impasse.
