                                            Case No. O-NG-897
 
                   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 on a petition
 for review of a negotiability issue filed by the Union.
 
    The record before the Authority indicates, that the local parties
 executed a collective bargaining agreement and submitted it to the
 agency head for review and approval pursuant to section 7114(c) of the
 Statute.  The agency head disapproved several provisions of the
 agreement concerning Union membership on the Base Suggestion Awards
 Committee and the Base Incentive Awards Board as contrary to law and
 agency regulation.  The Union then sought the Authority's determination,
 pursuant to section 7117 of the Statute and section 2424.1 of the
 Authority's Rules and Regulations, as to whether the disputed proposals
 were within the duty to bargain.  Subsequently, in a letter dated April
 25, 1984, the Agency withdrew the allegation of nonnegotiability.
 
    Since the Agency has withdrawn the allegation concerning the Union's
 proposals, there is no longer an issue as to whether the proposal is
 within the parties' duty to bargain under the Statute.  Accordingly, and
 apart from other considerations,
 
    IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the instant petition for review be
 dismissed.
 
    For the Authority.
