[ v15 p684 ]
The decision of the Authority follows:

 15 FLRA No. 136
                                            Case No. O-AR-753
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
    This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to the award of
 Arbitrator Elvis C. Stephens filed by the Union pursuant to section
 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and
 section 2425.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.  For the
 reasons stated below, it has been determined that the Union's exceptions
 must be dismissed.
    By Authority letter of June 13, 1984, the Union was informed that
 preliminary examination of its exceptions disclosed an apparent
 deficiency in meeting the requirements of the Authority's Regulations.
 Specifically, as was noted in the Authority's letter, the Union failed
 to comply with section 2425.2(d) which requires that a legible copy of
 the award of the arbitrator and legible copies of other pertinent
 documents be included with the exceptions.
    The Union was also advised that further processing of the appeal was
 contingent upon compliance with this provision of the Authority's
 Regulations.  In this regard, the Union was informed of the specific
 action that had to be taken to comply and complete the appeal, and was
 afforded time in which to submit a copy of the Arbitrator's award.
 Finally, the Union was advised that failure to comply with this
 requirement within the time limit provided could result in dismissal of
 the exceptions.  The Union has made no submission within the time period
    Thus, since the Union failed to properly complete its exceptions in
 conformity with the Authority's Regulations, the Union's exceptions are
 hereby dismissed for failure to comply with the Authority's Regulations.
    For the Authority.
