                    BUFFALO, NEW YORK
                        (Agency)

                      LOCAL 200-C
                        (Union)

                       0-AR-1904

              ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS

                     May 31, 1990


     On April 19, 1990, the grievant, Mr. James Carney, filed
exceptions to the award of Arbitrator Wade J. Newhouse in the
above-captioned case. For the reasons set out below, the
exceptions must be dismissed.

     On May 8, 1990, the Authority directed Mr. Carney to show
cause why his exceptions should not be dismissed for lack of
standing to file exceptions. On May 22, 1990, the grievant filed
a response and attached a copy of a letter, dated May 14, 1990,
from Thomas M. Beatty, Union President. In this letter, Mr.
Beatty stated that the "Union does not intend to participate in
the appeal of case #0-AR-1904. However, the Union does not object
to you pursuing this matter on your own if the FLRA  will permit
it."
