    I was talking to a guy yesterday who was from a neighboring state, different local. While we were talking, he had mentioned that he was going to file a grievance for an incident that happened 8 days ago. I told him that he was too late since we only had 5 working days to file and 10 to file against discipline.

    His grievance was not discipline related so he should have only 5 days in the Central. He goes on to tell me that where he is (also Central), he has 10 working days. I'm not a steward so I really didn't want to misspeak but I think he is SOL. He is still a rookie with about a year under his belt.

    Anyone else have different time frames in their local that are also in Central?

    Other supplements are all over the board with timeframes. I'm more curious about the other locals in the Central. I haven't filed a grievance in over a year I think, so I might very well be wrong on the timeframes. I thought it was 10 days also but then there was an incident in our building and the driver got the grievance tossed because it was untimely If I remember correctly, he filed around 9-10 days.

    He probably has a local rider that has different language

    Why wait. If you are going to file, then file immediately. No need in waiting a week or 10 days.

    Maybe wait a day or two to have time to talk to management and see if they will correct the problem before filing a grievance. No reason to wait longer.
     
  8. 19 days for a grievance and also 19 days to issue a warning letter here.

    You sure he's central states? Half the states around you are also Western. MT ID UT. I can't remember if CO is.

    That's almost ridiculous. That's almost a month when it's working days.

    That's great and all for the procrastinators but to drag something so important as a grievance for harassment or pay out to 30 days, that just seems counter intuitive.

    Don't know of anyone waiting that long but the 30 days have come in handy.

    I suppose under certain conditions it would prove useful.
