 A word about claims:
You have 60 days from the date of the incident to file a claim
The carrier has 8 pay periods to pay or deny your claim. This time starts at the date
that you submitted it.
The local chairman has 90 days to submit an appeal to labor relations, time beginning
at the date of the denial
Labor relations then has 90 days to respond to the local chairman from the date of the local chairman's appeal.  Bottom line; get your claims submitted as soon as possible to prevent delay.  Provide as much documentation with plenty of details-who what when and why. Look up the article and use the links portion of this site to help.
