The GLMRC will seek to provide advice that allows employees through their exclusive representatives to have pre-decisional involvement (PDI) in all workplace matters to the fullest extent practicable and by making a good-faith attempt to resolve concerns related to any proposed changes in conditions of employment, including those involving the subjects set forth in 5 U.S.C. 7106(b)(1). The GLMRC will evaluate and document changes in employee satisfaction, labor-management relations climate, and organizational performance. The GLMRC is a non-discretionary FACA committee. The functions of the GLMRC are advisory only.
