4.3 Time Limits

The time limits set forth in this section shall be considered substantive, and failure of the grievant to file and process the grievance within the time limits set forth in this section shall be deemed a waiver and a settlement of the grievance. The number of days indicated at each level should be considered a maximum. The time limits specified may, however, be extended by the mutual consent of the District and the grievant. The failure of a District representative to provide a written response to the grievance by the established deadline for such a response operates as and shall be treated the same as a written denial of the grievance. The parties may, through mutual consent, agree to start the grievance at a higher step if the grievance involves termination and is initially filed in a timely manner pursuant to the timelines set forth below.
