                                            Case No. O-NG-976
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This matter is before the Authority on a petition for review of
 negotiability issues filed by the Union pursuant to section 7117(c)(2)
 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and section
 2424.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  By Authority letter
 dated August 3, 1984, the Union was informed that preliminary
 examination of the petition for review had disclosed an apparent
 deficiency in meeting the requirements of the Authority's rules of
 procedure.  Specifically, as was noted in the Authority's letter, the
 Union's appeal failed to comply with section 2424.4(b) of the
 Regulations.
 
    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,
 the Union was informed of the specific actions that had to be taken to
 comply and complete the appeal, and was afforded time in which to take
 those actions.  Finally, the Union was advised that failure to comply
 with the cited requirements within the time limit provided could result
 in dismissal of the appeal.
