                                            Case No. 0-AR-1308 
                                            (McMullen, Arbitrator)
 
                        ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
 
    This case is before the Authority pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E)
 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and section
 2425.1 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations on exceptions to the
 award of Arbitrator James W. McMullen filed by the Union.  For the
 reasons indicated below, it has been determined that the Union's
 exceptions must be dismissed.
 
    By Authority letter dated April 10, 1987, the Union was informed that
 examination of its exceptions disclosed an apparent deficiency 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(d) of the Authority's
 rules which requires that a legible copy of the award of the arbitrator
 must be set forth in the Union's exceptions.
 
    The Union was informed of the specific action it had to take to
 comply and complete the appeal, and was granted 13 days in which to take
 that action.  The Union was advised that further processing of the
 exceptions was contingent upon compliance with the cited provision of
 the Authority's Regulations and was put on notice that failure to comply
 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 Union's exceptions are hereby dismissed for failure to
 comply with the Authority's Regulations.
 
    For the Authority
 
    Issued, Washington, D.C., May 12, 1987.
