                 DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE

 pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E) of the Federal Service
 Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and presents issues
 relating to the negotiability of the following Union Proposal:  /1/
 
          Section 3.  The reversion rights of employees affected by
       reduction-in-force shall be governed by applicable regulations and
       directives, except that, an employee in group I will, when reached
       by a reduction-in-force action, have reversion rights to all
       positions previously held within the unit, in descending order by
       rate of pay;  and to all intervening positions for which the
       affected employee is qualified.
