900.02000 – Declaration/Determination of Impasse
Impasse exists where the parties have considered each other's proposals and counterproposals, attempted to narrow the gap of disagreement and have, nonetheless, reached the point in their negotiations where continued discussion would be futile. Finding of impasse is vacated where record indicates that parties have not had any meaningful discussion of proposals, exchange of counterproposals or movement toward agreement on substantive issues.
