The decision of the Authority follows:
42 FLRA No. 9
FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY WASHINGTON, D.C.
OVERSEAS EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (Union) and U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE DEPENDENTS SCHOOLS (Agency)
0-NG-1948 ORDER DISMISSING PETITON FOR REVIEW September 13, 1991
The Agency, in its statement of position, states it has not declared "the matters . . . to be outside the obligation to bargain". In addition, the Union, in its response to the Agency's statement of position states:
Since management's representative has stated in the agency's position dated July 16, 1991[,] that the proposals are negotiable at the national level, it would appear that the dispute is over which level is appropriate for the bargaining of these proposals. The [Union] will pursue clarification of the negotiated agreement through the grievance and arbitration process.
