1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
Charge filed at least eight months after union informed employee that it would not process his grievance was untimely and properly dismissed. Employee’s continued attempts to obtain assistance by contacting the Teamsters International and union’s attorney did not extend the limitations period. The alleged failure of a representative of the International to set up a conference call as promised did not start the limitations period anew, as charging party was already on clear notice that the union had made a firm decision not to process his grievance.
