Case No. 0-NG-1331
  (29 FLRA No. 73)

ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION

     This case is before the Authority on a request filed by the
union seeking reconsideration of the Authority's decision of
October 20, 1987, in 29 FLRA  No. 73. In that case, the Authority
addressed numerous proposals submitted by the Union. The Union
requests reconsideration regarding the Authority's determinations
as to five of those proposals. The Authority severed one proposal
from the case and stated that it would issue a decision on that
proposal separately. The record in the case was not sufficiently
clear for the Authority to decide the negotiability of two
proposals, and the petition for review regarding those proposals
was dismissed. The Authority found the two other proposals to be
outside the duty to bargain.

     Section 2429.17 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations
permits a party that can establish "extraordinary circumstances"
to request reconsideration of an Authority decision. In this
case, the Union has not established extraordinary circumstances.
Rather, the Union's arguments constitute mere disagreement with
and an attempt to relitigate the merits of the Authority's
determinations as to the five proposals. 

     The Union has presented no basis on which to grant
reconsideration. Accordingly, the Union's request is denied.

     Issued, Washington, D.C., December 18,1987.
