In an action under the Administrative Procedure Act challenging the Department of Labor's (DOL) decision to deny a city's application to be relieved of provisions of a labor agreement, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where 1) the DOL did not depart from its applicable precedents without explanation; 2) nothing precluded the city from vigorously seeking renegotiation of the agreement under the threat of foregoing any further federal assistance; and 3) the DOL provided a detailed explanation why it determined that the city's objections were not sufficient.
