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.
