The decision of the Authority follows:
11 FLRA NO. 71
AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, AFL-CIO, LOCAL 1361 (Union) and DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE AND AIR FORCE PLANT REPRESENTATIVE'S OFFICE (DET 27), GENERAL DYNAMICS, FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Activity) Case No. 0-NG-751
This matter is before the Authority pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E) of the Federal Service Labor - Management Relations Statute and section 2424.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations on a petition for review of a negotiability issue filed by the union. For the reason indicated below, the union's petition for review must be dismissed.
It appears from the union's petition that the union was certified as the exclusive representative of a unit of activity employees and sought to meet with the commander of the activity to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement. The union did not, however, submit any specific proposals for negotiation. The commander of the activity responded by informing the union that pursuant to a directive from the Air Force Contract Management Division (AFCMD), he was not authorized to negotiate with the union.
