                                            Case No. O-NG-889
 
                   ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR REVIEW
 
    This case is before the Authority pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E)
 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and section
 2424.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations on a petition for review
 of negotiability issues filed by the Union.
 
    From the submission of the parties in the record before the Authority
 it appears that the Department of the Air Force (the Agency) issued a
 letter dated August 12, 1982, concerning the procedures for withholding
 within-grade increases for Federal Wage Systems Employees.  During
 impact and implementation bargaining on the provisions of the August 12,
 1982, letter, the Activity declared certain of the Union's proposals to
 be nonnegotiable.  The Union then filed the instant petition for review
 with the Authority.
 
    In its statement of position filed September 9, 1983, the Agency
 informed the Authority that the August 12, 1982, letter has been
 cancelled, and argues the Union's appeal has been rendered moot.
 
    Upon careful consideration of the submissions of the parties, it has
 been determined that the cancellation of the letter which gave rise to
 the negotiability issues presented in the Union's petition has served to
 render the dispute between the parties moot.
 
    Accordingly, without passing on the merits of the Union's proposals,
 and apart from other considerations, the Union's petition for review is
 hereby dismissed.  For the Authority.  Issued, Washington, D.C.,
 November 9, 1983
