Can union only negotiate to impasse?

Report as

huh?!?

An impasse would mean the two (or more) parties involved in the negotiations can't reach an agreement. Usually when that happens, a mediator is called in. If that doesn't work, often an arbitor will be called in.

For those who don't know the difference:

Mediator ... helps both sides continue the negotiations.

Arbitor ... makes a decision that both sides are bound by.

In most cases, unions are only able to negotiate until they reach an impasse. However, it is not always the case depending on the union's demands and the body they are presenting their demands to.
