1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
The period of limitations begins to run at the point when an injury to the charging party becomes fixed and reasonably certain. In a duty of fair representation proceeding, the period began to run when the employee knew that he was dissatisfied with the union's representation. The period does not date from the employee's receipt of a vague response from the union to his complaint about representation.
