The decision of the Authority follows:
16 FLRA No. 4 AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, COUNCIL 147, AFL-CIO Union and SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION Activity 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.
