 11 FLRA No. 41
 
 U.S. COAST GUARD HEADQUARTERS
 Activity
 
 and
 
 AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT
 EMPLOYEES, LOCAL 3313, AFL-CIO /1/
 Petitioner
 
                                            Case No. 3-CU-90
 
                    DECISION AND ORDER CLARIFYING UNIT
 
    Upon a petition duly filed with the Federal Labor Relations Authority
 under section 7111(b)(2) of the Federal Service Labor-Management
 Relations Statute (the Statute), a hearing was held before a hearing
 officer of the Authority.  The hearing officer's rulings made at the
 hearing are free from prejudicial error and are hereby affirmed.
 
    Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the
 parties' contentions, the Authority finds:  The American Federation of
 Government Employees, Local 3313, AFL-CIO (AFGE) was certified on July
 11, 1972, as the exclusive bargaining representative for a unit of all
 nonsupervisory professional and nonprofessional general schedule and
 wage grade employees of the United States Coast Guard Headquarters,
 Washington, D.C.  Essentially, AFGE's petition seeks to clarify the unit
 status of John Carros, Electronics Engineer, GS-855-14, who the Activity
 contends should be excluded from the bargaining unit on the ground that
 he is a supervisor, management official or both.
 
    The Authority finds, in agreement with AFGE
