1406.01000 – In General
The MMBA and PERB’s regulations only condition factfinding on a declaration of impasse by one of the parties, and neither the MMBA nor PERB’s regulations provide for a factfinding request being mooted by subsequent negotiations. If a party believed subsequent negotiations mooted a factfinding request, it could withdraw its declaration of impasse.
