I'm with local 693 in upstate New York and I have a question nobody seems to have the answer to. I was out last year with a shoulder injury and had short term disability. I needed to work 130 days in 2014 to quailfy for full vacation time for 2015. I worked 110 days and if you count my paid vacation time, holidays, and sick/personal pay and the 30 days they give you. for illness. I well exceed 130. But if they are not included, I dont hit 130. Im out again this year due to surgey on the same shoulder. I went our right after Christmas. So I cant check my pay stub. But I plan on being back in April. My contract's language does seem to favor the days counting. But dont know for sure. It states, " an employee must work at least one day in the next calendar year to qualify for vacation, except retirement purposes only; and all time paid for, plus any absence up to 30 days of illness, shall be counted toward computing the qualifying time required. any suggestions would be helpful. thanks in advance.
