[ v27 p899 ]
The decision of the Authority follows:
27 FLRA NO. 98
U.S. ARMY COMMUNICATION- ELECTRONICS COMMAND FORT MONMOUTH, NEW JERSEY Activity and FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE LODGE 48 Petitioner and AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, LOCAL 1904, AFL-CIO Intervenor Case No. 2-RO-70003
On May 11, 1987, the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Federal Lodge 48 (FOP) 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 in the above-named case. In his Decision and Order, the Regional Director found that the FOP did not have a sufficient showing of interest for exclusive recognition in a consolidated unit, and he dismissed the FOP's representation petition. In its application for review, FOP contends in essence that compelling reasons exist within the meaning of section 2422.17(c) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations for granting the application.
Upon consideration of FOP's application for review, we conclude that no compelling reason exists for granting the application. The Regional Director's finding has not been shown to be a departure from precedent, or to have prejudicially affected the rights of any party, or to be clearly erroneous as to a substantial factual issue.
