                                            Case No. 6-RO-30007
 
                            DECISION AND ORDER
 
    Upon a petition duly filed with the Federal Labor Relations Authority
 under section 7111(b)(1) of the Federal Service Labor-Management
 Relations Statute (the Statute), a hearing was held before hearing
 officers of the Authority.  The hearing officers' rulings made at the
 hearing are free from prejudicial error and are hereby affirmed.  /1A/
 
    Upon the entire record in this case, the Authority finds:  The
 Petitioner, National Association of Government Employees, Local R14-52,
 SEIU (AFL-CIO, CLC), seeks an election in a unit composed of all
 nonappropriated fund (NAF) employees at the Red River Army Depot (Depot)
 in Texarkana, Texas including the NAF employees in the Central
 Nonappropriated Fund Payroll Office (CNPO).  The Activity contends that
 the unit sought is inappropriate, as it seeks to join the employees of
 the CNPO in a unit with the NAF Depot employees.  The Petitioner will
 not accept any unit of nonappropriated fund employees that does not
 include the CNPO employees.
