    How long does management have to respond to grievances? I've tried looking in the contract but can not find any type of language that's states they have X amount of time to respond.

    They don't have to respond. It's the unions job to take them to panel. And that could take bit.
     
  3. I know grievance are covered under Article 8. Not sure if it's addressed in the Master or local supplement. Off the top of my head, 10 days rings a bell.

    Of course the company has to respond. How else would the union know to take a case to a panel?

    Grievance procedures are in your supplement or rider.

    Penalty pay for over 9.5 grievances takes forever in my local. That crap gets old.

    A little bird told me our building will be paying out close to 200k in greivance money that has stacked up since March that the company kept putting off addressing.

    That's incorrect. The employee has 10 days to file for discipline and 5 days for anything else. In terms of hearing grievances, there is no time frame written down.
