1000.02058 – Ground Rules for Negotiations

A rule requiring an economic analysis of current compensation and benefits received by the bargaining unit, and of possible opening proposals by the employer, is not negotiable because it does not have any direct impact on procedures for negotiations. An employer is entitled to deliberate privately and fully develop a proposal affecting negotiable subjects before presenting it to the employees’ representative.
