                                            Case No. 0-NG-671
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    THIS CASE IS BEFORE THE AUTHORITY PURSUANT TO SECTION 7105(A)(2)(E)
 OF THE FEDERAL SERVICE LABOR-MANAGEMENT RELATIONS STATUTE (5 U.S.C. 7101
 ET SEQ.) ON A PETITION FOR REVIEW OF NEGOTIABILITY ISSUES FILED BY THE
 UNION.
 
    THE RECORD IN THIS CASE INDICATES THAT THE LOCAL PARTIES EXECUTED A
 COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT AND SUBMITTED IT TO THE AGENCY HEAD FOR
 REVIEW AND APPROVAL PURSUANT TO SECTION 7114(C) OF THE STATUTE. DURING
 SUCH REVIEW THE AGENCY DISAPPROVED CERTAIN PROVISIONS IN THE LOCAL
 PARTIES' AGREEMENT AS CONTRARY TO AGENCY REGULATION.  THE UNION THEN
 FILED THE INSTANT APPEAL WITH THE AUTHORITY SEEKING A DETERMINATION,
 PURSUANT TO SECTION 7117(C)(1) OF THE STATUTE AND SECTION 2424.1(A) OF
 THE AUTHORITY'S RULES AND REGULATIONS (5 CFR 2424.1(A)(1982)), AS TO THE
 NEGOTIABILITY OF THE MATTER.  SUBSEQUENTLY, IN A LETTER DATED MAY 13,
 1982, THE AGENCY WITHDREW THE ALLEGATION OF NONNEGOTIABILITY.
 
    SINCE THE AGENCY HAS WITHDRAWN THE ALLEGATION OF NONNEGOTIABILITY,
 THERE IS NO LONGER AN ISSUE AS TO WHETHER THE PROVISIONS IN QUESTION IN
 THIS CASE ARE
