                                            Case No. 0-AR-1224
 
                                 DECISION
 
    This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to portions of the
 award of Arbitrator John F. Caraway filed by the Union under section
 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and
 part 2425 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  /*/
 
    Upon careful consderation of the entire record before the Authority,
 we conclude that the Union has failed to establish that the Arbitrator's
 award is deficient on any of the grounds set forth in section 7122(a) of
 the Statute;  that is, that the award is deficient on other grounds
 similar to those applied by Federal courts in private sector labor
 relations.  Accordingly, the Union's exceptions are denied.
 
    Issued, Washington, D.C., April 16, 1987.
