AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS
DECISION AND ORDER ON A NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE
December 28, 1993
Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.
I. Statement of the Case
This case is before the Authority on 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 a proposal obligating the Agency to allocate a reserved parking space for the Union's use. For the following reasons, we find that the proposal is negotiable.
The UNION will have five (5) card keys. One will be for reserved Union parking under Building II and four card keys for the parking garage.
[Only the underlined portion is in dispute.]
III. Positions of the Parties
The Agency contends that the disputed portion of the proposal is inconsistent with portions of the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR), 41 C.F.R. §§ 101-20.104.1 and 101-20.104.2, which, according to the Agency, establish priorities for allocating parking spaces.
