                                            Case No. O-AR-498
 
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    This case comes before the Authority on the exceptions of Mr. John R.
 Jay, the grievant in the above-entitled matter, to the award of
 Arbitrator Charles S. Bunker.  For the reasons set forth below, the
 subject exceptions must be dismissed.
 
    Section 2425.1(a) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations provides:
 
          Either party to arbitration under the provisions of chapter 71
       of title 5 of the United States Code may file an exception to an
       arbitrator's award rendered pursuant to the arbitration.
 
    Section 2421.11 of the Rules and Regulations provides in pertinent
 part:
 
          "Party" means (a) any person . . . (4) who participated as a
       party . . . (ii) in a matter where the award of an arbitrator was
       issued . . . .
 
    In this case, it appears that two parties (the union and the
 activity) participated as "parties" in the arbitration proceeding here
