                                            Case No. O-AR-841
 
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to the award of
 Arbitrator Joseph W. Garbarino filed on behalf of the grievant pursuant
 to section 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations
 Statute (5 U.S.C. 7122(a)).  For the reasons that follow, the Authority
 is without jurisdiction to review the exceptions and the exceptions
 therefore must be dismissed.
 
    Section 7122(a) of the Statute provides, in pertinent part:
 
          Either party to arbitration under this chapter may file with
       the Authority an exception to any arbitrator's award pursuant to
       the arbitration (other than an award relating to a matter
       described in section 7121(f) of this title).
 
    As relevant to this case, the matters described in section 7121(f) of
 the Statute include those covered under 5 U.S.C. 7512 which, in turn,
 applies to specified adverse actions including removals.  Review of an
 arbitration award relating to such matters must be obtained in
 accordance with 5
