		           DECISION

		        January 22, 1990

Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.

     I. Statement of the Case

     This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to the
award of Arbitrator Josef Rohlik. A grievance was filed
concerning the rating that the grievant received when she applied
for a Military Personnel Staffing Technician position. The
Arbitrator denied the grievance because it was not timely filed
in accordance with time frames set forth in the parties'
collective bargaining agreement.

     The American Federation of Government Employees, Local Union
No. 900 (the Union) filed exceptions under section 7122(a) of the
Federal Service Labor - Management Relations Statute (the
Statute). The U.S. Army Reserve Personnel Center (the Activity)
did not file an opposition to the exceptions.

     We conclude that the Union has not established that the
Arbitrator's award is deficient on any of the grounds set forth
in section 7122(a) of the Statute. Accordingly, we deny the
Union's exceptions.
