                                            Case No. O-AR-267
 
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    ON AUGUST 3, 1981, THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES,
 AFL-CIO, LOCAL 1592 (THE UNION) FILED EXCEPTIONS TO THE AWARD OF
 ARBITRATOR REED RICHARDSON IN THE INSTANT CASE WITH THE AUTHORITY,

    BEGINNING ON THE DATE OF THE AWARD.
 
    THE SUBJECT ARBITRATION AWARD, AS INCLUDED IN THE UNION'S SUBMISSION,

 THE SUBJECT EXCEPTIONS WERE NOT FILED WITH THE AUTHORITY UNTIL AUGUST 3,
 1981.  IN THIS REGARD, THE AUTHORITY IS NOT EMPOWERED TO EXTEND OR WAIVE
 THE TIME LIMIT FOR FILING EXCEPTIONS TO ARBITRATOR'S AWARDS.
 
    ACCORDINGLY, AS THE UNION'S EXCEPTIONS WERE UNTIMELY FILED, AND APART
