    Don't talk to the steward. It's time to call the local.

    If you were fired 2 weeks ago, I think you're screwed.

    Don't grievances have to be filed within 10 days?

    Did they send the notice through regular mail? How can they prove you ever received it? And if you didn't receive is it still valid?

    They usually send them certified mail or NDA signature required.

    You must have an awful good reason for not being there all this time, even if the local agrees that your letter's tardiness gives you special dispensation (which it probably doesn't). If you are hurt, you may have a case. In fact just say you're hurt.

    Right, did it come certified mail?

    Why are you not going to work and why doesn't the company know about it.

    Every excuse I ever heard made perfect sense to the person who made it.

    I typically know when to show up for work. Its no wonder there will always be 6% unemployment.

    So if it never gets signed for does it count?

    Rather than guessing or asking internet experts, you need to go to your union hall and talk to a business agent.

    They tried that with an employee at our building. It failed because the sent it thru regular mail. Do as 407 said and call the local. You need the local on this one.
