    Last Thursday 9/8 I requested 9/18 off (option 3) it's the first day of school here and my kids are young and I want to be there. Full time sup says he'll see? Well I've been on vacation this week 9/10-9/16. So I get a TEXT yesterday 9/15 letting me know my option day for the 18th was denied, to many people taking that day off. Now, I've been with ups for almost 10yrs, 5yrs doing reload and a little over 4 now doing preload. So just to be clear, since when do I need approval for an option day?? My Option days are MY option.. Right?

    Nope. Days off are given based on staffing.

    Here you have to request an option day 8 days in advance then management has 24 hours to deny, otherwise it is approved. The procedures do vary widely in different centers though.

    I have received that reply so many times in the past that I don't even ask for optional days off. Just cash that 2 day check every May 1st.

    What does your regional supplement say in regards to when they have to let you know if you have the option request or not. They can deny if over a certain number have off according to our regional supplement. Call in if they deny.

    Ever have UPS forget to pay you for your unused days May 1st? It happened to me a couple of times and once they insisted I had taken my option days when I hadn't used any. I made them check and they finally paid me but it was a big hassle. After that I always took all of my days so they wouldn't "forget" again.

    We get paid for any unused sick and personal days on or around Dec 15. I always run out of days before I run out of year.

    Here when you request an optional day, you put it in a week before the day you need, and by the end of the next day they have to give you a yes or no, or it's approved.

    Either way, if it's that important to you, just call out. You're "sick"

    Let's say that after being denied the optional day he does call in sick. You don't think they will give him a hard time Tuesday morning?

    Nope. Always get that bonus check every May 1st.

    And that would be a live check and not direct deposit.

    As long as the OP has sicks days available...he's allowed to be sick...even on days he was denied a personal day.
