                                            Case No. O-NG-965
 
                   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 on a petition
 for review of a negotiability issue filed by the Union.
 
    From the submissions of the parties, the record before the Authority
 in this case indicates that during the course of negotiations, the Union
 submitted proposals concerning the procedures for collecting
 administrative fees from bargaining unit employees who had made
 unauthorized/unofficial toll calls.  The Activity alleged the Union's
 proposal to be nonnegotiable.  The Union then sought the Authority's
 determination, pursuant to section 7117(a)(1) of the Statute and section
 2424.1(a) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations, as to whether the
 disputed proposal was within the duty to bargain.  Subsequently, in a
 letter dated April 6, 1984, the Agency withdrew the Activity's
 allegation of nonnegotiability.
 
    Since the Agency has withdrawn the Activity's allegation concerning
 the Union's proposal, there is no longer an issue as to whether the
 proposal is within the parties' duty to bargain under the Statute.
 Accordingly, and apart from other considerations,
