ORDER

On November 22, 1988, the Union filed a motion for reconsideration of the Authority's October 27, 1988, Decision and Order on Negotiability Issues on Remand. For the reasons set forth below, the Union's motion for reconsideration must be dismissed as untimely.

The Authority issued its Decision and Order on October 27, 1988, and it was served on the parties by mail on that same date.

The time limit for filing a motion for reconsideration is 10 days after service of the Authority's final decision or order. 5 C.F.R. § 2429.17. The date of service is the day when the matter served is deposited in the U.S. mail or is delivered in person. 5 C.F.R. § 2429.27(d) (1988). The Authority's Decision and Order was served on the Union by mail on October 27, 1988. Whenever a party is served by mail, 5 days are added to the prescribed period for filing a motion for reconsideration. 5 C.F.R. § 2429.22. Therefore, in order to be timely filed, any motion for reconsideration of the Authority's October 27th Decision and Order had to be either postmarked or hand-delivered to the National Office of the Authority no later than close of business November 14,

1988. 5 C.F.R. § 2429.21(b), as amended.(*) The Union's motion for reconsideration was filed on November 22, 1988.

Accordingly, as the Union's motion for reconsideration is untimely, it is dismissed.

For the Authority.

Issued, Washington, D.C., December 6, 1988
