Opinion for the court per curiam.


We conclude, in agreement with the decisions in Hayes v. United States Government Printing Office, 684 F.2d 137 (D.C. Cir. 1982), Chang v. Merit Systems Protection Board, 677 F.2d 173 (1st Cir. 1982), Christo v. Merit Systems Protection Board, 667 F.2d 882 (10th Cir. 1981), and Wiggins v. United States Postal Service, 653 F.2d 219 (5th Cir. 1981), that mixed cases involving claims of both discrimination and improper agency action must be brought as one action in the District Court. Accordingly, this court lacks jurisdiction over the petition, and it is therefore dismissed.

So ordered.
