                                            Case No. O-NG-575
 
                DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUES
 
    This petition for review comes before the Federal Labor Relations
 Authority (the Authority) pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(D) and (E) of
 the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and
 raises the question of the negotiability of two Union proposals.  Upon
 careful consideration of the entire record, including the parties'
 contentions, the Authority makes the following determinations.
 
                             Union Proposal 1
 
          Military uniforms are not required to be worn by technician
       employees while traveling in a civilian TDY status.
 
    The Agency disputes the negotiability of this proposal only to the
 extent that it would apply to aircrew members on military aircraft who
 are required to wear the military uniform.  The Union states, consistent
 with the language of the proposal, that it is intended to apply only to
 passengers and not to crew members.  Accordingly, the Authority views
 the dispute between the parties with respect to Union Proposal 1 as
 having been rendered moot.
 
                             Union Proposal 2
 
          Orders will reflect
