How long does bargaining last?
There is no set time frame for bargaining to be concluded. Both parties have a legal obligation to meet and confer in good faith. Insofar as those discussions continue to be productive, the parties continue to meet. When, after a reasonable period of time, the parties fail to reach agreement, the parties may mutually agree to request mediation and ultimately move to impasse.
