    Upon consideration of the entire record in this case, including the

    The complaint alleges that the Respondent refused to comply with
 section 7131(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations
 Statute (the Statute) in violation of section 7116(a)(1) and (8) of the
 Statute based on its denial of the request of employees Edwin N. Bloomer
 and Wanda A. Wiseman, who served as designated Union representatives,
 for official time in connection with travel related to the mediation and
 arbitration of a dispute as ordered by the Federal Service Impasses
 Panel (the Panel).  These proceedings were held in Washington, D.C. from

 for travel and per diem expenses, which they incurred during their
 participation in such proceedings.
