 of Government Employees (union) pursuant to section 7117(c)(2) of the
 Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and sections 2424.3
 and 2424.4 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  By Authority
 letter of May 25, 1983, the Union was informed that preliminary
 examination of the petition for review in the above-captioned case
 disclosed a number of apparent deficiencies in meeting certain

 was noted in the Authority's letter, the union's appeal failed to comply
 with the requirements of sections 2424.4(a)(2), 2424.4(a)(4), 2424.4(b),
 2424.5, and 2429.27(c).
 
    The union was also advised in the Authority's letter that further
 processing of the appeal was contingent upon compliance with the
 designated provisions of the Authority's Regulations.  In this regard,
