15 FLRA No. 61 AIR FORCE ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE CENTER LOWRY AIR FORCE BASE, COLORADO Activity/Petitioner and AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, AFL-CIO, LOCAL 2040 Labor Organization Case No. 7-CU-40001 ORDER DENYING APPLICATION FOR REVIEW On June 1, 1984, the Air Force Accounting and Finance Center, Lowry Air Force Base, Colorado (Petitioner), filed a timely application for review, pursuant to section 2422.17(a) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations, seeking to set aside the Regional Director's Decision and Order on Petition for Clarification of Unit in the above-named case. In support thereof, the Petitioner contends that compelling reasons within the meaning of section 2422.17(c) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations exist for granting its application. /1/ Upon consideration of the Petitioner's application for review, including all arguments in support thereof, the Authority concludes that no compelling reasons exist for granting the application. Rather, the application in essence expresses mere disagreement with the Regional Director's findings, which have not been shown to be clearly erroneous. Accordingly, pursuant to section 2422.17(f)(3) of the Authority's Rules and Regulations, IT IS ORDERED that the application for review of the Regional Director's Decision and Order on Petition for Clarification of Unit be, and it hereby is, denied.

Frazier III, Member FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY --------------- FOOTNOTES$ --------------- /1/ Section 2422.17(c) provides: (c) The Authority may grant an application for review only where it appears that compelling reasons exist therefor. Accordingly, an application for review may be granted only upon one or more of the following grounds: (1) That a substantial question of law or policy is raised because of (i) the absence of, or (ii) a departure from Authority precedent; (2) That there are extraordinary circumstances warranting reconsideration of an Authority policy; (3) That the conduct of the hearing held or any ruling made in connection with the proceeding has resulted in prejudicial error; or (4) That the Regional Director's decision on a substantial factual issue is clearly erroneous and such error prejudicially affects the rights of a party.
