1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
Statute of limitations begins to run on the date the employee, acting with reasonable diligence, knew or should have known that further assistance from the union was unlikely. Repeated refusals to process a grievance over a recurring issue do not start the limitations period anew. Union unequivocally stated, in April and May of 1997, that it would not pursue employee's grievance further. Charge filed in March of 1999 was therefore untimely.
