I. Statement of the Case
This matter is before the Authority on an exception to the award of Arbitrator Kenneth J. Latsch filed by the Union under section 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and part 2425 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations. The Agency's opposition to the Union's exception was untimely filed and has not been considered.(*)
For the following reasons, we conclude that the award is contrary to section 7116(d) of the Statute. Accordingly, we will set aside the award and remand the matter to the parties for resubmission to arbitration.
