                                            Case No. 0-AR-944
 
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    This case is before the Authority on exceptions to the award of
 Arbitrator Robert B. Lubic 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.  By Authority
 letter dated April 9, 1985, the Union was informed that preliminary
 examination of the exceptions disclosed apparent deficiencies in meeting
 the requirements of the Authority's rules of procedure.  Specifically,
 as was noted in the Authority's letter, the Union's exceptions failed to
 comply with section 2425.2(b) and (d) of the Regulations.
 
    The Union was also advised in the Authority's letter that further
 processing of the exceptions was contingent upon compliance with the
 designated 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 take
 that action.  Finally, the Union was advised that failure to comply with
 the cited requirement within the time limit provided could result in
 dismissal of the exceptions.
 
    The Union has made no submission within the time limit provided.
 Accordingly, the exceptions are hereby dismissed for failure to comply
 with the Authority's Regulations.  For the Authority.  Issued,
 Washington, D.C., May 20, 1985
