Labor-Management Relations Collective Bargaining Agreements

Collective Bargaining Agreement Database

Executive Order (EO) 13836, Developing Efficient, Effective, and Cost-Reducing Approaches to Federal Sector Collective Bargaining, signed by the President on May 25, 2018, requires agencies to submit each term collective bargaining agreement (CBA) and its expiration date within 30 days of the CBA’s effective date. EO 13836 further requires OPM to make these CBAs publicly available on the Internet. This promotes transparency by allowing the public to view the types of agreements reached between agencies and federal sector unions. Agencies are also required to submit arbitration awards to OPM within 10 business days of receipt. OPM issued a Memorandum on the Release of the CBA Database which contains guidance on agency submission requirements for CBAs and arbitration awards.

The CBAs found on this database were submitted to OPM by executive departments and agencies. This database is based on information provided to OPM by executive departments and agencies and may not contain all existing CBAs in the Executive Branch. OPM will regularly update this database as existing and new CBAs are provided to OPM.

Submitting Documents

Agency labor relations staff, or other appropriate personnel, may register as a user and submit CBAs and arbitration awards through OPM’s Labor Relations Document Submission Portal. Once approved, agency users may submit CBAs and arbitration awards directly through this application. CBAs should not include any signatures, individual names, or other personal identifiers. Agencies may simply remove the signature page from CBAs or redact individual signatures, names, and other personal identifiers from the CBAs. Please note that all CBAs must be submitted in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file format that conforms with the standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. § 794 (d) and 36 CFR Part 1194). Arbitration awards do not require Section 508 conformance or redaction but must be in a searchable format. Please see the Memorandum on the Release of the CBA Database for further information on submitting documents. To register for the first time as an agency user, please go to the user registration page.

If you have any questions about submitting CBAs and arbitration awards, please contact OPM’s Accountability and Workforce Relations staff at LRG@opm.gov. For questions related to specific CBAs found on this database, please contact the agency associated with that CBA. For information on representational data on all bargaining units certified by the Federal Labor Relations Authority, including the name, description, location, bargaining unit employee population, and other information, please visit the Federal Labor Management Information System.
