    I was wondering what hours does calling in absent uses. Also, how do I use my OTH hours.

    Next time you call in make sure it's at least 1 hour before your shift. You don't need to give them a reason just tell them your booking off. If you want to give them a reason tell them your sick. Them hang up....

    There is no pay code for being absent. There is a pay code 26 which means no pay... Absent code mean a lot of things and some not good.

    Depends where you are . Sick is suck it up and go to work, no pay. I prefer to stay home when I am well, and work when I am sick.

    In my building new FT drivers are just happy to be back driving after working inside for the last five months. Come July they will be wanting to know what it takes to get a day off.

    Depends on your supplement. Southern Region has option days if chosen option 3 when options are chosen in September of each year.
  15. Our lowest seniority guy just ended up quitting because of lack of days. He just couldn't take it anymore. I think he's worked 2 days since January 15th. He was an off the street hire from peak. It was too bad, with vacations coming around I don't think the guy would have had a day off until next January.

    Three threads about calling in sick???? I guess some don't realize they have to work the day before and the day after a holiday to get paid for the holiday.

    That not the case in every area in my are you only have to work any day during the week not the day before or after.

    Here it is the day before OR the day after. I'm sure manning will be cut Tuesday to optimize the amount of not paying the holiday.

  19. The day before I buy. But the day after I don't think so. It's an early payroll week. Everything has to be in and error free by tomorrow.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We have to work both or be scheduled off for one or both to get paid for the holiday.
