                                            Case No. 0-AR-1006
 
                                 DECISION
 
                         I.  STATEMENT OF THE CASE
 
    This matter is before the Authority on an exception to the award of
 Arbitrator H. Morton Rosen filed by the Department of the Navy (the
 Agency) under section 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management
 Relations Statute and part 2425 of the Authority's Rules and
 Regulations.
 
                  II.  BACKGROUND AND ARBITRATOR'S AWARD
 
    The grievance alleged that the Activity failed to allocate overtime
 impartially, in accordance with the parties' collective bargaining
 agreement, during a three-month period.  The grievance claimed that an
 individual who had been temporarily promoted to foreman for the months
 in question, performed the work of a machinist during overtime, thereby
 depriving three other machinists of overtime work.
 
    The Arbitrator determined that the Activity had violated the
 agreement by allowing the temporary foreman to do the work of
 nonsupervisory personnel during periods of overtime.
