 DEAR MS. CARNELL:
 
    THIS REFERS TO YOUR EXCEPTIONS TO THE ARBITRATOR'S AWARD IN THE
 ABOVE-ENTITLED CASE, FILED WITH THE AUTHORITY ON OCTOBER 29, 1979.
 
    FOR THE REASONS INDICATED BELOW, IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT YOUR
 EXCEPTIONS WERE UNTIMELY FILED AND CANNOT BE ACCEPTED FOR REVIEW.
 
    SECTION 2425.1(B) OF THE REGULATIONS OF THE FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS
 AUTHORITY (COPY ENCLOSED) PROVIDES:
 
    (B) THE TIME LIMIT FOR FILING AN EXCEPTION TO AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS
 THIRTY (30) DAYS
 
    BEGINNING ON THE DATE OF THE AWARD.
 
    THE SUBJECT ARBITRATION AWARD, AS INCLUDED IN YOUR SUBMISSION, IS
 DATED SEPTEMBER 26, 1979.  THEREFORE, UNDER SECTION 2425.1(B) OF THE
 AUTHORITY'S REGULATIONS, YOUR EXCEPTIONS WERE DUE IN THE OFFICE OF THE
 AUTHORITY NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 25, 1979.  HOWEVER, AS STATED ABOVE,
 YOUR EXCEPTIONS WERE NOT FILED WITH THE AUTHORITY UNTIL OCTOBER 29,
 1979.  IN THIS REGARD, THE AUTHORITY IS NOT EMPOWERED TO EXTEND OR WAIVE
 THE TIME LIMIT FOR FILING EXCEPTIONS TO ARBITRATORS' AWARDS.
 
    ACCORDINGLY, AS YOUR EXCEPTIONS WERE UNTIMELY FILED, AND APART FROM
 OTHER CONSIDERATIONS, YOUR APPEAL IS HEREBY DISMISSED.
 
    FOR THE AUTHORITY.
 
                                SINCERELY,
