                                            Case No. 0-NG-999
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This case is before the Authority pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E)
 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and section
 2424.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations on a petition for review
 of negotiability issues filed by the Union.  For the reasons indicated
 below, it has been determined that the Union's petition for review was
 untimely filed and must be dismissed on that basis.
 
    From the record in this case it appears that on November 14, 1983,
 the Agency served on the Union by mail its allegation of
 nonnegotiability with respect to the four Union proposals here in
 dispute.  Since, under section 7117(c) of the Statute and section 2424.3
 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations, the time limit for filing a
 petition for review is fifteen days after the date the Agency's
 allegation is served on the Union, the Union's petition for review was
 due in the national office of the Authority on December 5, 1983.  The
 Union's petition for review was not filed with the Authority until
