                                            Case No. O-NG-235
 
                DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY APPEAL
 
    THE PETITION FOR REVIEW IN 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, ON AUGUST 13, 1979, THE OFFICE OF
 MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET (OMB) ISSUED CIRCULAR NO. A-118, WHICH ESTABLISHED
 A GOVERNMENT-WIDE PAID PARKING PROGRAM FOR FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND
 DIRECTED THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (GSA) TO DEVELOP

 TEMPORARY REGULATION D-65 (44 F.R.  53161), WHICH PRESCRIBED PROCEDURES
 FOR THE ASSIGNMENT OF PARKING SPACES AND THE ASSESSMENT OF FEES.  THE
 RECORD FURTHER INDICATES THAT ON THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE GSA
 REGULATION, THE UNION REQUESTED THAT THE AGENCY BARGAIN OVER "THE
 EXISTENCE AND AMOUNT OF MONTHLY PARKING FEES," AND ASKED THE AGENCY FOR
 ANY NONNEGOTIABILITY DETERMINATION THAT IT MAY CHOOSE TO ASSERT.  THE
