                                            Case No. O-NG-797
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This matter is before the Authority on a petition for review of a
 negotiability issue filed on behalf of the union pursuant to section
 7117(c)(2) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (5
 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.) and Parts 2424 and 2429 of the Authority's Rules
 and Regulations (5 CFR Parts 2424 and 2429 (1982)).  By Authority letter
 dated March 17, 1983, the union was informed that preliminary
 examination of the petition for review in this case disclosed a number
 of apparent deficiencies in meeting certain requirements in the
 Authority's rules of procedure.  Specifically, as was noted in the
 Authority's letter, the union's appeal failed to comply with sections
 2424.4(a)(1), 2424.4(a)(2), 2424.4(a)(3), 2424.4(a)(4), 2424.4(b),
 2424.5 and 2429.25 of the Regulations.
 
    The union was also advised in the Authority's letter that further
 processing of the appeal was contingent upon compliance with the
 designated provisions of the Authority's Regulations.  In this regard,
 the union was informed of the specific actions that had to be taken to
 comply and complete the appeal, and was afforded time in which to take
 those actions.  Finally, the union was advised that failure to comply
 with the cited requirements within the time limit provided could result
 in dismissal of the appeal.
 
    The union has made no submission within the time limit provided.
 Accordingly, the appeal is hereby dismissed for failure to comply with
 the Authority's Regulations.  For the Authority.  Issued, Washington,
 D.C., May 19, 1983
