[ v53 p3 ]
The decision of the Authority follows:
53 FLRA No. 1
FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY
FEDERAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION/LEJEUNE
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE
CAMP LEJEUNE DEPENDENTS SCHOOLS
June 3, 1997
Before the Authority: Phyllis N. Segal, Chair; and
Donald S. Wasserman, Member.
This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to an award of Arbitrator J. Reese Johnston, Jr. filed by the Union under section 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 section 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. Upon careful consideration of the entire record in this case, the Authority concludes that the award is not deficient on any of the grounds set forth in section 7122(a).
Accordingly, the Union's exceptions are denied.(*)

*/ In denying the Union's exceptions, this decision addresses only the Arbitrator's substantive arbitrability determination, not the merits of the grievance.
