                                            Case No. 0-NG-1176
 
                 DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE
 
                         I.  Statement of the Case
 
    This case is before the Authority because of a negotiability appeal
 filed under section 7105(a)(2)(E) of the Federal Service
 Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute), and concerns the
 negotiability of the following Union proposal:  /1/
 
    Article 13, Section 6 (Shift Work)
 
          Unit employees working on a shift at the time of conversion to
       daylight savings time will have the option of using one hour of
       annual leave or working an additional hour as a method of
       maintaining their regular 8 hour shift.
 
                       II.  Positions of the Parties
 
    The Agency alleges the proposal is nonnegotiable because (1) it
 interferes with management's right to assign work under section
 7106(a)(2)(B) and (2) it interferes with management's elective right to
 determine the numbers, types and grades of employees assigned to a work
 project or tour of duty under section 7106(b)(1).
