Is ADR available at one or more points during the hearing process?:
If "Yes," when is ADR available?:
Is ADR a mandatory or voluntary process?:
If "Varies by Case," please describe::
The FSIP is the alternative to the right to strike in the Federal sector. As such, its entire mission involves ADR. However, when the FSIP decides to resolve a dispute through a written submissions procedure, the outcome normally is a final action where ADR has not been incorporated as part of the process. Most cases currently are not resolved using a written submissions procedure, however.
What type(s) of ADR are available?:
If "Other," please specify::
FSIP Members and Staff who provide ADR are third-party neutrals.
