Case No. 4-CA-50152
 (26 FLRA No. 109)

ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION

This case is before us on the Respondent's motion for reconsideration, as amended, and request for a stay of our remedial order of May 8, 1987. For the reasons set forth below, we deny the motion and stay request.

In our decision, we held that the Respondent violated section 7116(a)(1), (5) and (8) of the Federal Service Labor - Management Relations Statute (the Statute) in failing and refusing to furnish, as required by section 7114(b)(4) of the Statute, information requested by the Charging Party, the exclusive representative of certain of the Respondent's employees. As a remedy, we ordered, among other things, the posting of a Notice to be signed by the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Administration and Management in the Respondent's Washington, D.C. offices.

In its amended motion for reconsideration, the Respondent contends that it would be more appropriate for the Notice to be signed by the Chief of Human Resources, Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and for the Notice to be posted in MSHA's field office in Price, Utah.

Section 2429.17 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations permits a party that can establish "extraordinary circumstances" to request reconsideration of a final decision or order of the Authority. We conclude that the Respondent [PAGE] has not established "extraordinary circumstances" within the meaning of section 2429.17. Rather, the argument presented by the Respondent in support of its amended request constitutes nothing more than disagreement with the determination as to the appropriate official to sign the Notice and location for posting the Notice. The Respondent's motion is therefore denied. The request for a stay is likewise denied.

Issued, Washington, D.C., July 16, 1987.
