1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
The limitations period begins to run once the charging party knows, or should have known, of the conduct underlying the charge.
800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
A union does not owe a duty of fair representation to unit members in a forum over which the union does not exclusively control the means to a particular remedy. Thus, refusing to assist charging party in an appeal before the State Personnel Board is not a violation.
