                 DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE
 
    THIS CASE COMES BEFORE THE FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY (THE
 AUTHORITY) PURSUANT TO SECTION 7105(A)(2)(E) OF THE FEDERAL SERVICE
 LABOR-MANAGEMENT RELATIONS STATUTE (THE STATUTE) (5 U.S.C. 7101 ET
 SEQ.).
 
    THE RECORD INDICATES THAT THE UNIT REPRESENTED BY THE UNION INCLUDES
 A NUMBER OF BANK EXAMINERS WHO TRAVEL THROUGHOUT THE MULTI-STATE BOSTON
 DISTRICT OF THE AGENCY FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONDUCTING BANK EXAMINATIONS.
 WHILE THE EXAMINERS TRAVEL TO AND FROM THEIR HOMES TO THE EXAMINATION
 SITES, THEY ARE EACH ASSIGNED TO AN OFFICIAL DUTY STATION WHICH SERVES,
 AMONG OTHER THINGS, AS THE POINT FROM WHICH AN EXAMINER'S TRAVEL STATUS
 IS DETERMINED.  THESE OFFICIAL DUTY STATIONS EXIST AT VARIOUS
 UNSPECIFIED LOCATIONS WITHIN THE BOSTON DISTRICT.  FOLLOWING THE
 AGENCY'S DETERMINATION THAT THE PREPONDERANCE OF WORK EXISTS IN THE
 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS AND HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT AREAS, THE AGENCY
 DECIDED TO DESIGNATE ONLY THOSE TWO CITIES AS OFFICIAL DUTY STATIONS FOR
 BANK EXAMINERS WITHIN THE BOSTON DISTRICT AND TO ELIMINATE ALL OTHER
 OFF
