ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR
RECONSIDERATION

April 28, 2000

Before the Authority: Donald S. Wasserman, Chairman; Phyllis N. Segal and Dale Cabaniss, Members.

      Respondent, U.S. Geological Survey (Survey), has filed a motion for reconsideration of the Authority's decision in U.S. Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C. and U.S. Geological Survey, Reston, Virginia, 56 FLRA 45 (2000). In that case, the Authority (Member Cabaniss concurring in part, dissenting in part), on remand from the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, concluded that the Respondent Survey committed unfair labor practices when it refused to bargain over a proposal requiring midterm bargaining.
