    On August 1, 1984, the Authority issued its Supplemental Decision and
 Order in the above-entitled proceeding /1/ in which it found that the
 Respondent was not obligated under section 7114(a)(2)(A) of the Federal
 Service Labor-Management Relations Statute /2/ (the Statute) to afford
 an exclusive representative of its employees notice of and the
 opportunity to be present at an interview of a unit employee in
 preparation for a hearing before the Merit Systems Protection Board
 (MSPB) and therefore had not violated section 7116(a)(1) and (8) of the
 Statute.  /3/ Bureau of Government Financial Operations, Headquarters,
 15 FLRA 423 (1984).  Thereafter, on October 11, 1985, the U.S. Court of
 Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit set aside the Authority's
 Decision and held, contrary to the Authority, that the subject matter of
 the interview concerned a grievance as that term is used in section
 7114(a)(2)(A
