The motion court properly found that plaintiff had reason to know that the union would not be pursuing his grievance; consequently, the complaint, filed more than six months after his last unanswered communication with the union, was untimely (see White v White Rose Food, 128 F3d 110, 114 ). There was no basis for tolling the limitations period or barring its assertion, in the absence of any claim of fraudulent concealment (see Cohen v Flushing Hospital and Medical Center, 68 F3d 64, 69 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
