    Article 61, section G, line 6.
    Southern Region Supplemental Agreement pg. 208.

    Basically, no vacations from the Monday following Thanksgiving until December 25th.

    It may be different in other supplements.

    They have to offer vacation for all weeks from Jan thru Thanksgiving! File a grievance! They tried it in my center and after I raised cane they changed it to 6 drivers off!

    When I worked for UPS the first time, I was scheduled to take my vacation the week of Thanksgiving. I was going to go NUTS sitting at home, so I worked. For several years prior to that when I was with a retail employer, I took my vacation the week of Thanksgiving. One year, my boss made a sarcastic comment about not letting me take my vacation. Yours truly almost went ballistic. Ten minutes later, she called my cashier terminal and said, "You're good to go. I was having a little fun. Have a great vacation!" -Rocky

    It was offered to us when we picked our vacations earlier this year. I thought about taking but figured i was already gonna have 2 days off so wasn't going to bother. I have the week of Halloween off instead. Unfortunately trickor-treat is the week before so I will have to take some personal time so I can be home to take my little girl out for her first candy collection.
