                                            Case No. O-NG-836
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This matter is before the Authority on a petition for review of
 negotiability issues filed on behalf of 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 13, 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) and 2424.4(a)(3) 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 25, 1983
