This was through SEIU local 250 union, in the agreement they put no information on when I will receive my settlement money. Are there any laws on statue of limitations?

A: You mention, "Settlement money." So you reached a settlement in mediation? If you did, there would be no arbitration. A general rule about such things is, within a reasonable time. And barring any other factors, 30 days is par for "reasonable." If you do not, ask the mediator.
