DECISION AND ORDER

October 11, 1990

Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.

I. Statement of the Case

The Administrative Law Judge issued the attached decision in the above-entitled proceeding, finding that the Respondent had engaged in the unfair labor practices alleged in the complaint by refusing to furnish, upon request of the Charging Party, the names and home addresses of bargaining unit employees. The Judge granted the General Counsel's motion for summary judgment and recommended that Respondent be ordered to take appropriate remedial action. The Respondent filed an exception to the Judge's Decision. The General Counsel filed an opposition to the Respondent's exception.

Pursuant to section 2423.29 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations and section 7118 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute), we have reviewed the rulings of the Judge and find that no prejudicial error was committed. The rulings are hereby affirmed. Upon consideration of the Judge's Decision, the exception, and the entire record, we adopt the Judge's findings, conclusions, and recommended Order, as modified,(*) for the reasons fully set forth in U.S. Department of the Navy, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 37 FLRA No. 39 (1990).

The Union's request for the names and home addresses of unit employees satisfies the requirements of section 7114(b)(4). Therefore, the Respondent was required to provide the data requested by the Union and its refusal to do so violated section 7116(a)(1), (5) and (8) of the Statute.

(b) In any like or related manner, interfering with, restraining, or coercing its employees in the exercise of rights assured them by the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute.

Reasonable steps shall be taken to ensure that such notices are not altered, defaced, or covered by any other material.
