                    DECISION AND ORDER CLARIFYING UNIT
 
    Upon a petition duly filed with the 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 1858 (Affiliated with AFL-CIO) (AFGE) was
 certified as the exclusive representative for a unit of all professional
 employees of the Ballistic Missile Defense Advanced Technology Center,
 Huntsville, Alabama.  Essentially, the amended petition seeks to clarify
 the bargaining unit status of 16 GS-15 employees who the Petitioner
 contends should be included in the unit because they are neither
 supervisors nor management
