    DECISION AND ORDER

    On September 16, 1987, Johanna Nagel, an employee of the State of New Jersey, filed a petition of appeal with the Public Employment Relations Commission Appeal Board contesting the amount assessed as a representation fee in lieu of dues paid to the Communications Workers of America, the majority representative. An Answer to the petition was filed on December 9, 1987.

    On January 22, 1988, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:l4F-l et seq ., the Appeal Board transferred the petition as a contested case to the Office of Administrative Law for hearing. It was assigned to Administrative Law Judge Daniel B. McKeown. Prior to the opening of hearings the CWA and the petitioner entered into a stipulation of settlement. Judge McKeown reviewed the terms of the settlement and concluded that it was entered into voluntarily, fully disposed of


    all issues in controversy and was consistent with law. N.J.A.C . l:l-l9.l.

    On May 3, 1988 Judge McKeown issued an "Initial Decision-Settlement" ordering that all parties comply with the terms of the settlement and concluding the proceedings before him. We have reviewed the settlement and order, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:14B-10, and conclude it is correct.
