Before the Authority: Dale Cabaniss, Chairman and
Wayne C. Beyer, Member

      This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to an award of Arbitrator James G. Scoville filed by the Union under § 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and part 2425 of the Authority's Regulations. The Agency filed an opposition to the Union's exceptions.

      Under § 7122(a) of the Statute, an award is deficient if it is contrary to any law, rule, or regulation; or it is deficient on other grounds similar to those applied by federal courts in private sector labor-management relations. U
