[ v46 p1061 ]
The decision of the Authority follows:
46 FLRA No. 96
FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE
TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, OKLAHOMA
AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
ORDER DISMISSING EXCEPTIONS
December 31, 1992
On September 23, 1992, the Authority issued an Order granting the Union an opportunity to correct deficiencies in its exceptions to the award of Arbitrator Jerome Smith in the above-captioned case. The Union was directed to comply with the Authority's Regulations by filing with the Authority five legible copies of: (1) the Arbitrator's award; and (2) the attachments referenced in its exceptions.
The Authority's Order stated that the Union's submission must be filed by October 7, 1992, and that failure to comply with the Order may result in dismissal of the Union's exceptions.
The Union filed an incomplete response to the Authority's September 23, 1992, Order. The additional copies of the Arbitrator's award are not completely legible, and the Union failed to provide copies of the attachments referenced in its exceptions. Further, it appears that the arbitration award furnished by the Union is not the award referred to in its exceptions. For example, the Union's exceptions: (1) dispute a timeliness ruling allegedly made by the Arbitrator which is not contained in the award; (2) quote language in the award which does not exist in the award; and (3) refer to matters on pages 23 and 24 of the award, although the award furnished by the Union is only 7 pages in length.
The Union has failed to comply with the Authority's Order of September 23, 1992. Accordingly, the Union's exceptions are dismissed.
For the Authority.
