Hi everyone, first time poster on the forum and nine year employee at UPS. I am having a bit of an issue with my full-time supervisor and was looking for some clarity. Last week I went to my part-time Supe and asked for him to put in for one of my vacation weeks. I told him that I wanted to work the scheduled vacation week, and take five days off over the next two months. I have no more Sick or Optional Days and need off a few nights, so rather than callout I wanted to give them notice. This practice had been allowed before in my hub, and I did not believe would be an issue at all, yet he told me he needed approval from the full-time supervisor. The next day he told me my request was denied and did not give me a reason. So I spoke to my shop steward, who told me that I could put in for a scheduled day off without pay. I went back to my part time Supervisor and explained with the steward had told me. Again, he said he needed to run it past the full-time supervisor. Well tonight I was told that my request was again denied, and that scheduled days without pay were not allowed. The full-time supervisor said he would be in tomorrow night, and if I wanted to I could speak to him with the shop steward. So I plan on speaking to him but I was wondering what grounds I have to stand on. Is this an issue that varies per department or hub? Any feedback would be appreciated!
