                                            Case No. O-AR-834
                                            (16 FLRA No. 12)
 
                 SUPPLEMENTAL ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    On September 24, 1984, the Authority issued an Order dismissing the
 exceptions in the above-captioned case because, among other things, it
 appeared that the exceptions were filed by the grievant and that the
 grievant was not a party in the proceeding before the Arbitrator and,
 therefore, was not entitled to file the exceptions under section
 2425.1(a) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  Accordingly, and
 apart from other considerations, the exceptions were denied.  The
 grievant subsequently filed a submission establishing that he was
 authorized to file the exceptions on behalf of the Union.  Accordingly,
 the conclusion that the grievant was not entitled to file the exceptions
 is hereby reversed.
 
    However, apart from that consideration, the Union's exceptions are
 otherwise procedurally deficient as untimely filed and, therefore, the
 Order of September 24, 1984, is hereby amended to explicitly dismiss the
 exceptions on that basis.
