ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION
November 15, 1990
Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.
I. Statement of the Case
This case is before the Authority on a request for reconsideration filed by the Union. The Union requests reconsideration of the Authority's Order of August 17, 1990, which dismissed the Union's exceptions to an arbitration award because the Union had not complied with a prior Order of the Authority that directed it to serve a complete copy of its exceptions on the Agency and to file a statement of service with the Authority. The Agency did not file an opposition to the Union's request for reconsideration. For the reasons set forth below, the Union's request for reconsideration is denied.
On July 2, 1990, the Union filed exceptions to an arbitration award dated June 19, 1990. By Order dated July 25, 1990, the Authority notified the Union that it had not complied with 5 C.F.R. º 2429.27(c) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations because it had not submitted to the Authority a signed and dated statement of service showing that it had properly served its exceptions on the Agency under 5 C.F.R. º 2429.27(a) and (b) and 5 C.F.R. º 2425.1(d). The Authority gave the Union until August 3, 1990, to comply with these regulations. When the Union failed to respond to the Authority's July 25 Order, the Authority dismissed the Union's exceptions on August 17, 1990.
