DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUES

The petition for review in this case comes before the Authority pursuant to section 7105(a(2)(E) of the Federal Service Labor - Management Relations Statute (the Statute), and raises issues relating to the negotiability of the following Union proposal.

The Union proposes that this change be accomplished through attrition.

Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following determinations. The Union proposal was introduced during "impact bargaining" over a management plan to require training instructors who previously taught either typing or academic/clerical subjects to now teach both. Since the purpose of this proposal, as stated by the Union, is to permit currently employed instructors to continue to teach either typing or academic/clerical subjects and to require only newly hired personnel to teach both courses, the proposal would effectively bar management from revising the work assignments of currently employed instructors. In this respect, the instant proposal is in all respects materially to the same effect as the first paragraph of the proposal held to interfere directly with management's right under section 7106(2)(2)(B) of the Statute "to assign work" in Association of Civilian Technicians and State of Georgia National Guard, 2 FLRA 581 (1980). Based on Georgia National Guard and the reasons stated therein, it is concluded that the instant proposal is inconsistent with management's 7106(a)(2)(B) right "to assign work" and is outside the duty to bargain. [ v11 p580 ]

Accordingly, pursuant to section 2424.10 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations, IT IS ORDERED that the Union's petition for review be, and it hereby is, dismissed.
