Case No. 0-AR-1426

ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS

This case is before the Authority on exceptions filed September 8, 1987 to the award of Arbitrator John F. Oldfield by Mr. Roger W. Archibald, the grievant, in the above-entitled case. For the reasons stated below, the exceptions must be dismissed.

By Authority letter dated September 24, 1987, Mr. Archibald was informed that the exceptions were deficient in meeting the requirements of section 2425.2(d) and (e) of the Authority's rules which requires a legible copy of the award of the arbitrator and his name and address. Additionally, Mr. Archibald was asked to furnish evidence which established that he participated as a "party" in the proceedings or that he had been authorized by the Union to file the instant exceptions on its behalf. Mr. Archibald was informed of the specific actions necessary to comply and complete the appeal and was granted 10 days in which to do so. Finally, he was advised that failure to comply with the cited requirements within the time limit provided could result in dismissal of the exceptions. 

No submission to remedy the cited deficiencies of the instant appeal has been made within the time limit provided. Accordingly, and apart from other considerations, the exceptions are hereby dismissed for failure to comply with the Authority's rules of procedure.

For the Authority.

Issued, Washington, D.C., October 21, 1987.
