DECISION

This matter is before the Authority on an exception to the award of Arbitrator Ira F. Jaffe filed by the Agency under section 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor - Management Relations Statute and part 2425 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.

The dispute in this case concerns the separation of the grievant during her probationary period. A grievance was filed and submitted to arbitration protesting the separation. The Arbitrator determined that the grievance was arbitrable and on the merits denied the grievance.

In its exception the Agency contends that the award is contrary to law and regulation. The Authority agrees.
