The National Labor Relations Act requires that employers or the representative of the employees who are covered by a collective bargaining agreement provide written notice to the other party 60 days prior to the expiration ate of a proposed termination or modification of a collective bargaining agreement. The Act also calls for notice to be provided to the NJSBM and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS).
The Notice to Mediation Agencies (F-7) found on FMCS’s website at www.fmcs.gov should be sent the State and Federal Mediation Agencies:
New Jersey State Board of Mediation

Newark, New Jersey 07102
Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service
2100 K Street NW

Upon receipt of the Notice by the Board, a professional mediator will be in contact with the involved parties to the collective bargaining agreement to offer mediation services.
