Download as PDF 7054 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 41 / Friday, March 1, 2019 / Notices jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES attorney fees since 1984. As early as 2016, the Authority has publicly questioned its continued use of the Allen criteria and acknowledged that it may be more appropriate to develop criteria to assess attorney fees that are more applicable to the federal collective-bargaining and grievancearbitration experience. See U.S. DHS, U.S. CBP, 70 FLRA 73, 76 (2016). Because the Authority has not directly addressed the issue of appropriate criteria for attorney fees, as reflecting federal collective-bargaining and grievance-arbitration actions, the Authority is providing an opportunity for the parties and other interested persons to file briefs addressing the following questions: Should the Authority reconsider its nearly exclusive reliance upon MSPB case law (Allen) and the MSPB’s interpretation of 5 U.S.C. 7701(g) for the purpose of determining whether attorney fees are warranted in the federal collective bargaining context? If so, why? If not, why not? What factors should the Authority consider when determining whether the statutory criteria for attorney fees are met in the federal collective bargaining context? What factors should the Authority not consider? For example, how should the Authority determine who is a ‘‘prevailing party’’ in the context of the interpretation of a collective-bargaining agreement? In answering these questions, the parties and other interested persons should address: (1) The wording of the Statute and the Back Pay Act; (2) any principles of statutory construction; (3) any legislative history regarding 5 U.S.C. 7701(g) and any other relevant provisions of the Statute or other applicable laws; and (4) the practical impact of suggested criteria that should be considered in light of the Statute’s requirement that its provisions be interpreted in a manner consistent with the requirement of an effective and efficient government. 4. Required Format for Briefs All briefs shall be captioned ‘‘AFGE, Local 1633 and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Michael E. DeBakey Medical Center, Houston, Texas, Case No. 0–AR–5354.’’ Briefs shall contain separate, numbered headings for each issue covered. Interested persons must submit an original and four (4) copies of each amicus brief, with any enclosures, on 81⁄2 x 11 inch paper. Briefs must include a signed and dated statement of service that complies with the Authority’s Regulations showing service of one copy of the brief on all counsel of record or other designated VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Feb 28, 2019 Jkt 247001 representatives, 5 CFR 2429.27(a) and (c). Accordingly, briefs must be served on: Stephen Jones, Attorney, American Federation of Government Employees, Local 1633, 2002 Holcombe, Houston, TX 77030, (214) 796–0011, Stephen.jones@sejpc.com; Thomas Herpin, Attorney, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Michael E. DeBakey Medical Center, Houston, Texas, 6900 Alameda (02), Houston, TX 77079, (713) 383–2769, Thomas.Herpin@va.gov; Fred K. Blackard, Arbitrator, 10713 Marsha Lane, Houston, TX 77024, FKblackard@ aol.com. Dissenting View of Member Ernie DuBester I have previously suggested that the FLRA reconsider the Allen Factors. However, I do not think that this is an ideal case for doing so. In my view, the greatest deficiencies of the Allen Factors—as applied to the types of cases the FLRA is called upon to review—is that they are unnecessarily cumbersome and impractical for both practitioners and arbitrators. This case’s disposition does not even require application of the Allen Factors. Accordingly, I do not think it is especially instructive. Dated: February 22, 2019.
