 What We Do / FAQ about Notices and Filings
  Are there different requirements for health care and non-health care institutions?

For health care institutions, in the case of renewal contracts, two kinds of notices are required:
  1. 90 day notice, in advance of the termination/expiration of the contract, of intent to renegotiate to be given by one party to the other; and
  2. 60 day notice, in advance of the termination/expiration of the contract, notifying FMCS and State mediation service of intent to terminate or renegotiate.

NOTE: Once one of the parties sends the 90 day notice, it is the same party that is obligated to send the FMCS the 60 day notice.

For non-health care institutions:

  1. 60 days prior to expiration of the current contract, serve written notice on the other party to a contract of proposed termination or modification; and
  2. 30 days prior to contract expiration, notify the FMCS of the existence of a dispute if no successor agreement has been reached by then.

If you are unsure whether your institution is a health care or non-health care institution, or you are unsure of your legal requirements regarding notice filing, contact the local NLRB office closest to you.
