F7 Notice of Bargaining

As of April 5, 2022, FMCS is no longer accepting notices of dispute required by statute (“F-7” notices) via email, fax, mail, or other paper delivery. Parties may only submit F-7 notices through this portal. For all questions or concerns regarding F-7 notices, including undue hardships, or if further assistance is required, please contact the FMCS Notice Processing department at (202) 606-5499. Please do not send additional copies of your notice to any other FMCS office.

By completing the form below you are notifying FMCS that written notice of proposed termination or modification of the existing collective bargaining contract was served upon the other party to this contract and that no agreement has been reached. In the case of an initial agreement following recognition or certification, this form also serves to notify FMCS that no agreement has been reached.

When submitted, this online form provides you with a confirmation number for proof of submission and future reference. Please do not also send your notice by any other means, as these methods are no longer accepted. If you decide to also notify your FMCS district executive manager or other FMCS officials (not required), please make sure to that you indicate to that person that you have already submitted a notice online.
