DECISION AND ORDER
March 28, 1991
Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.
I. Statement of the Case
This unfair labor practice case is before the Authority on exceptions filed by the General Counsel to the attached Decision of the Administrative Law Judge. The Respondent filed an opposition to the General Counsel's exceptions.
The complaint alleged that the Respondent violated section 7116(a)(1) and (5) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) by refusing to bargain with the Union over changes in conditions of employment. The Respondent admitted that it had insisted, as a condition to entering into negotiations, that the Union reduce the size of its negotiating team, but contended that it was privileged to impose such a condition because the parties had agreed to the size limitation on which it was insisting.
