Per the New England supplement UPS is supposed to afford 15% of eligible employees the opportunity to receive a vacation. We have 21 eligible employees and yet they are only offering 3 people off during the summer months. Calculations prove this is only 14.29% so we wrote out a grievance and everyone on the preload signed it. We feel they should offer a fourth person off during the summer. Our business agent calls our steward back and tells him that per a panel decision some 20 years ago that this is ok the way it is, and they he doesn't feel that the locals money should be wasted trying to fight this. I'm not sure if I am more at UPS for blatantly not following the contract or my BA for not standing up and fighting for what we feel is a cut and dry issue. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on this. I would also like to know if anyone can tell me where I would be able to research panel decisions myself. Is there a public site online that could help? I would also be interested to hear from you guys how many people are on your vacation list, and how many UPS allows your center to have off in the summer. I would love to hear from everyone but I am particularly interested in those who are under the New England supplement.
