Before the Authority: Donald S. Wasserman, Chairman and Dale Cabaniss, Member.

I.     Statement of the Case

      On July 18, 2000 the Respondent and the Charging Party entered into a settlement stipulation (Stipulation). On July 20, 2000, the Stipulation was approved by the San Francisco Regional Director of the Authority, on behalf of the General Counsel. [n1] The Stipulation provides for entry of a consent order by the Authority and a consent judgment by any appropriate United States Court of Appeals. In addition, the parties have waived all further and other proceedings before the Authority to which they may be entitled under the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and the Regulations of the Authority, and the Respondent has consented to the Authority's application for the entry of a decree by an appropriate Federal court.

      The Stipulation is hereby approved and is made part of the record in this case. Based on the entire record in this case, including the Stipulation, the Authority finds that: (1) the Respondent is an agency, within the meaning of section 7103(a)(3) of the Statute; and (2) the Charging Party is a labor organization, within the meaning of section 7103(a)(4) of the Statute. Also based on the record, the Authority issues the following Order:
