The decision of the Authority follows:
16 FLRA No. 22 AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, AFL-CIO, LOCAL 1603 Union and DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY, NAVY COMMISSARY STORE, PATUXENT RIVER, MARYLAND Agency Case No. O-NG-885 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 proposal: Acknowledging that there is a problem with recording/keeping of time at the Commissary Retail Store, we, the Union, propose that each employee report to the supervisor or person in charge of the shift that he is assigned. Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following determination. The record indicates that the instant appeal arose when the Agency proposed changing its policy of recording the time and attendance of employees. The Agency wanted to have employees utilize an electric time clock. The Union did not want to use a time clock. As an alternative, the Union made the proposal at issue in this appeal.
