Amending Time Limits. The time limits fixed in the arbitration procedure may be altered by mutual consent of the parties but the same must be in writing.
Amending Time Limits. If a party fails to comply with the time limits in Articles 9.02, 9.03, 9.06 (Step 2) and 9.07, then the grievance shall be considered abandoned, unless the parties have agreed, in writing, to extend the time limits or as otherwise ordered by an arbitrator or Registrar of the BCHOA. Both parties will endeavour to meet the timelines, however, where it is not possible for one party to do so, agreement to extend the timeline will not be unreasonably withheld by the other party.
