                                            Case No. 7-CU-40001
 
                   ORDER DENYING APPLICATION FOR REVIEW
 
    On June 1, 1984, the Air Force Accounting and Finance Center, Lowry
 Air Force Base, Colorado (Petitioner), filed a timely application for
 review, pursuant to section 2422.17(a) of the Authority's Rules and
 Regulations, seeking to set aside the Regional Director's Decision and
 Order on Petition for Clarification of Unit in the above-named case.  In
 support thereof, the Petitioner contends that compelling reasons within
 the meaning of section 2422.17(c) of the Authority's Rules and
 Regulations exist for granting its application.  /1/
 
    Upon consideration of the Petitioner's application for review,
 including all arguments in support thereof, the Authority concludes that
 no compelling reasons exist for granting the application.  Rather, the
 application in essence expresses mere disagreement with the Regional
 Director's findings, which have not been shown to be clearly erroneous.
 
    Accordingly, pursuant to section 2422.17(f)(3) of the Authority's
 Rules and Regulations, IT IS ORDERED that the application for review of
 the Regional Director's Decision and Order on Petition for Clarification
 of Unit be, and it hereby is, denied.

    /1/ Section 2422.17(c) provides:
 
          (c) The Authority may grant an application for review only
       where it appears that compelling reasons exist therefor.
       Accordingly, an application for review may be granted only upon
       one or more of the following grounds:
 
          (1) That a substantial question of law or policy is raised
       because of (i) the absence of, or (ii) a departure from Authority
       precedent;
 
          (2) That there are extraordinary circumstances warranting
       reconsideration of an Authority policy;
 
          (3) That the conduct of the hearing held or any ruling made in
       connection with the proceeding has resulted in prejudicial error;
       or
 
          (4) That the Regional Director's
