                                            Case No. O-NG-1049
 
                   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 negotiability issues filed by the Union.
 
    From the submissions of the parties, the record before the Authority
 in this case indicates that during the course of negotiations, the Union
 submitted a proposal seeking relief for registered nurses from
 nonprofessional tasks enabling them to perform their professional
 duties.  By letter dated August 17, 1984, the Activity declared the
 Union's proposal to be nonnegotiable.  The Union then filed the instant
 petition for review with the Authority pursuant to section 2424.3 of the
 Authority's Rules and Regulations, as to whether the disputed proposal
 was within the duty to bargain.  Subsequently in a letter dated October
 22, 1984, the Activity withdrew the allegation of nonnegotiability.
 
    Since the Activity has withdrawn the allegation of nonnegotiability
 concerning the Union's proposal, there is no longer an issue as to
 whether the proposal in this case is within the parties' duty to bargain
 under the Statute.
 
    Accordingly, and apart from other considerations, the petition for
 review in this case is hereby dismissed.  For the Authority.  Issued,
 Washington, D.C., November 30, 1984
