1000.02058 – Ground Rules for Negotiations
Parties must bargain bilaterally regarding ground rules for negotiations in the same manner they must bargain in good faith about substantive terms or conditions of employment. This includes all format and timing issues relating to negotiations, including but not limited to when to commence negotiations, deadlines for phases of negotiations, topic sequences, the use of cooling off periods, and interest-based bargaining formats.
