No grievance shall be entertained or processed unless it is submitted within fourteen (14) days after the first event giving rise to the grievance or within fourteen (14) days after the employee or CWA, through the use of reasonable diligence, could have obtained knowledge of the first event giving rise to the grievance. If a grievance is not presented within this time limit, it shall be considered "waived." If a grievance is not appealed to the next step within the specified time limit or an agreed written extension thereof, it shall be considered settled on the basis of the First Step Answer. Failure at any step of this procedure to hold a meeting or communicate a decision in a grievance within the specified time limits shall permit the aggrieved party to treat the grievance as denied and to proceed immediately to the next step. The parties may, by mutual agreement, extend in writing any of the time limits set forth in this Article.
