                                            Case No. 5-RO-60005
 
         ORDER DENYING APPLICATION FOR REVIEW AND REQUEST FOR STAY
 
    On June 5, 1986, the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE)
 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 Certification of
 Representative in the above-named case.  NFFE also filed a request for a
 stay of such Decision and Order on Petition for Certification of
 Representative.  NFFE contends that compelling reasons exist within the
 meaning of section 2422.17(c) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations
 to support the application for review.  /*/
 
    Upon consideration of NFFE's application for review, including all
 arguments in support thereof, the Authority concludes that no compelling
 reason exists for granting the application.  Rather, the application in
 essence expresses mere disagreement with the Regional Director's
 findings which are based on the Authority's Rules and Regulations and
 have not been shown to be clearly erroneous or to have prejudicially
 affected the rights of any party.
 
    Accordingly, pursuant to section 2422.17(f)(3) of the Authority's
 Rules and Regulations, IT IS ORDERED that the application for review and
 request for a stay of the Regional Director's Decision and Order on
 Petition for Certification of Representative be, and it hereby is,
 denied.
