The decision of the Authority follows:


 7 FLRA No. 3
 
 NATIONAL UNION OF COMPLIANCE OFFICERS
 (Union)
 
 and
 
 UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR,
 LABOR-MANAGEMENT SERVICES ADMINISTRATION
 (Activity)
 
                                            Case No. O-NG-392
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING NEGOTIABILITY APPEAL
 
    THIS CASE IS BEFORE THE FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY PURSUANT TO
 SECTION 7105(A)(2)(E) OF THE FEDERAL SERVICE LABOR-MANAGEMENT RELATIONS
 STATUTE (5 U.S.C. SEC.  7101 ET SEQ.).
 
    THE AUTHORITY ADVISED THE UNION THAT PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION OF ITS
 PETITION FOR REVIEW IN THE CASE DISCLOSED AN APPARENT DEFICIENCY IN
 MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE AUTHORITY'S RULES AND REGULATIONS.
 SPECIFICALLY, THE UNION'S APPEAL FAILED TO COMPLY WITH SECTION 2424.4(B)
 (5 C.F.R. SEC. 2424.4(B)(1980)).
 
    THE UNION WAS ALSO ADVISED BY THE AUTHORITY LETTER THAT FURTHER
 PROCESSING OF THE APPEAL WAS CONTINGENT UPON COMPLIANCE WITH THE
 DESIGNATED PROVISION OF THE AUTHORITY'S REGULATIONS.  IN THIS REGARD,
 THE UNION WAS INFORMED OF THE SPECIFIC ACTIONS THAT HAD TO BE TAKEN TO
 COMPLY AND COMPLETE THE APPEAL, AND WAS AFFORDED TIME IN WHICH TO TAKE
 THOSE ACTIONS.  FINALLY, THE UNION WAS ADVISED THAT FAILURE TO COMPLY
 WITH THE CITED REQUIREMENT WITHIN THE TIME LIMIT PROVIDED COULD RESULT
 IN DISMISSAL OF THE APPEAL.
