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 issues relating to the negotiability of the following Union proposal.

Each examiner shall have his/her own telephone.

Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following determination. In agreement with the Agency, the Authority finds that the proposal, by expressly requiring that the Agency provide each examiner with a telephone, clearly concerns the "technology of performing work" within the meaning of section 7106(b)(1) of the Statute.
