The decision of the Authority follows:
46 FLRA No. 119
FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT
AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
(45 FLRA 1280 (1992))
(46 FLRA 878 (1992))
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION
January 28, 1993
Before Chairman McKee and Members Talkin and Armendariz.
I. Statement of the Case
This matter is before the Authority on the Union's motion for reconsideration of our order in 46 FLRA 878, denying reconsideration of 45 FLRA 1280. The Agency did not file an opposition to the Union's motion for reconsideration.
We again conclude that the Union has failed to establish that extraordinary circumstances exist warranting reconsideration. Accordingly, we will deny the Union's motion. We will not entertain further motions or arguments by the Union on these issues. See American Federation of Government Employees, Local 2017 and U.S. Department of the Army, Army Signal Center and Fort Gordon, Fort Gordon, Georgia, 46 FLRA 693 (1992) (AFGE, Local 2017).
II. Our Orders in 45 FLRA 1280 and 46 FLRA 878
In 45 FLRA 1280, we determined that the Union's exceptions to the Arbitrator's award were untimely filed. Accordingly, we dismissed the Union's exceptions. In 46 FLRA 878, we rejected the Union's motion for reconsideration, in which the Union contended the Authority inconsistently calculates the 30-day time limit for filing exceptions to an arbitration award. In this regard, we noted that the Authority consistently calculates the 30-day time limit for filing exceptions to an arbitration award beginning on the date the award is served on the filing party. We further noted that the date of service is the date the arbitration award is deposited in the U.S. mail or is delivered in person. We found that the Union's motion did not establish extraordinary circumstances warranting reconsideration of our order in 45 FLRA 1280. Therefore, we denied the Union's reque
