In 1978, Congress enacted the Civil Service Reform Act, Title VII of which provides the first statutory basis for collective bargaining between the federal government and employee unions. Title VII in no way reduced the existing legal proscriptions against strikes by federal employees and unions representing employees in the federal service.

Under section 7120(f) of Title VII, Congress provided that the Federal Labor Relations Authority ('FLRA' or 'Authority') shall 'revoke the exclusive recognition status' of a recognized union, or 'take any other appropriate disciplinary action' against any labor organization, where it is found that the union has called, participated in or condoned a strike, work stoppage or slowdown against a federal agency in a labor-management dispute. 5 U.S.C. § 7120(f) (Supp. IV 1980).
