                                                  Case No. 6-CU-70007
 
                 ORDER DENYING APPLICATION FOR REVIEW

     I. Statement of the Case

     This case is before the Authority on an application filed by
the American Federation of Government Employees, AFL - CIO, Local
3828 (the Union) under section 2422.17(a) of the Authority's
Rules and Regulations, seeking review of the Regional Director's
Decision and Order Clarifying Unit. The Regional Director found
that an employee should be excluded from the bargaining unit
because she is a confidential employee within the meaning of
section 7103 (a) (13) of the Federal Service Labor - Management
Relations Statute (the Statute). The Union contends that
compelling reasons exist within the meaning of section 2422.17(c)
of our Rules and Regulations for granting the application. We
find that no  compelling reasons exist and we therefore deny the
application.
