1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
In cases alleging a breach of the duty of fair representation, the six-month limitations period begins to run on the date when the charging party, in the exercise of reasonable diligence, knew or should have known that further assistance from the union was unlikely; where the only conduct complained of in the charge was union’s failure to represent charging party at a scheduled arbitration, and charge was filed within six months of arbitration, charge was timely filed.
