                                            Case No. O-NG-852
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This matter is before the Authority on a petition for review of a
 negotiability issue filed by the union pursuant to section 7117(c)(2) of
 the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and Parts 2424
 and 2429 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  By Authority letter
 dated July 5, 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
 2429.27(c) 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., August 22, 1983
