                                            Case No. O-NG-519
 
                 DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE
 
    The petition for review in this case comes before the Authority
 pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E) of the Federal Service
 Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute), and raises issued
 relating to the negotiability of the following Union proposal.
 
          An employee called back to work outside his/her normal shift
       will be paid a minimum of four (4) hours and will only be required
       to work on the emergency for which he/she was called back.
 
    Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the
 parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following determination.
 Based on the language of the proposal and the uncontested allegation of
 the Agency, the Authority concludes that the first portion of the
 proposal would require that an employee who is called back to work be
 paid for a minimum of four hours regardless of whether the employee
 performs work for those four hours.  In this respect, it is not
 materially different from Unio
