    So okay, I've been here nine years, (working monday through friday), and I've taken any number of friday-monday occurrences. They have, to the best of my memory, always been counted as one occurrence, just like a Tuesday/Wednesday or a Thursday/Friday.
    Today, however, my supervisor is telling me that no, that would be two occurrences, because... the weekend is in the middle?
    ?????
    Is this new, have all my old supes been amazingly forgiving, or is this one utterly wrong?

    Can anyone clear this up for me?

    It would be on two separate pay periods, so two occurrences.

    Coming in late, leaving early, or calling in are all occurences, as well.

    I had always heard that if it was consecutive days, in this case, Friday and Monday, it was counted as 1 occurrence. Of course, YMMV.

    Ask your Steward or BA. Local practices differ.

    Where I'm at, it is 1 occurrence. Consecutive working days count as 1.

    Friday and Monday is no different than Wednesday and Thursday.

    One occurrence. Supervisors will say anything to prevent you from calling in, particularly lying. So if you came down with a bad case of the flu on Friday, and still were sick on Monday, that would be two occurrences? No. Nothing a grievance wouldn't correct.

    Why would there be a no call no show?

    It wouldn't. It counts as one absence. Good night.

    A no call no show is just one example of an occurrence.

    It is two separate pay periods and as such would be considered to be two occurrences.

    It's consecutive work days. Pay periods have nothing to do with it. Unless you rider specifically says that you have been letting the screw you for years.

    It's book off to book on. If you book of on Friday and don't book back on till Tuesday or Wednesday that's one occurrence.

    Not here. We have to call in each and every day and need to provide a doctor's note after the 3rd day.
     
  17. One day off we have to call back on one hour before our shift. Two or more days off ,you must call back onby the end of your shift After 3 days you are required to have a doctors note.

    Yet another example of how things are different everywhere. Different regions, different locals, different buildings all have different practices based on all I read on BC.

    Probably most of us see UPS thru the narrow view of what takes place in our one center. I've been at it ten years and never set foot in another center.
