What is Impasse?

What does impasse mean? Impasse is essentially a deadlock between the negotiating parties. If the Public Employee Relations Board (PERB) makes a determination of impasse it will refer the case to the State Mediation and Conciliation Service for the assignment of a mediator. If a mediator is unable to effect a settlement, they may certify the dispute to fact-finding for resolution.
