                 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 an issue
 concerning the negotiability of one provision of a negotiated agreement
 which was disapproved by the Agency head pursuant to section 7114(c) of
 the Statute.  Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including
 the parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following
 determination.
 
          5.  LONGEVITY:  One (1) point will be added to each candidates
       score for each year of completed concurrent technician service at
       the Montana Air National Guard.  No decimal point will be given
       for portions of years completed or lost.  Hire in date will be the
       starting date of employment.  Technicians that are RIF'd and
       return at the earliest opportunity or technicians that terminate
       to go on active duty, will be credited with previous technician
       longevity.
