A review was made of the adequacy of the staff and resources of the newly established Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).

FLRA, and especially its General Counsel and regional operations, do not have adequate resources to establish full operation and effectively carry out the duties and responsibilities assigned under the Civil Service Reform Act. A review of the number of cases filed with FLRA during its first 4 months of operations substantially exceeded the case load upon which FLRA based its initial fiscal year 1980 budget request. The delays in processing cases resulting from insufficient resources or inexperienced personnel will increase the time and energy required of federal managers to resolve problems arising in the workplace. The consequences may be costly in terms of declining morale and productivity. Therefore, immediate attention should be given the FLRA budget request for 1980.
