    I recently was upgraded to full time Jan 5. My last week's check they paid out all of my part time vacation. My question is do I still get vacation as full time or do I get no vacation this year. Thanks for any help.

    Your vacation was cashed out, you get none til next year. Look at your stub, it will show you how much time you have to take.

    You will have no FT paid vacations and your PT vacations were cashed out. Consider your lay off days as your vacation days.

    Man, if that's true, your local is jacked up. When I went from PT to FT my vacations just blended in. No cash out.

    Hmm. You should get the vacation weeks that you bid, just paid at PT rate since that's when you earned them.

    You may have sick days on the books as well. You will get time off, due to no enough work. At this time of the year you shouldn't have any vacation to cash out.

    I am wondering about this too, my seniority date is last year but on this check I am only showing my part time vacation.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Your vacation should have been updated by now. I would make a copy of that pay stub and have your sup look in to it for you.

    Having similar issue. I qualified in October. Was formerly pt for 7 years. I looked at the bottom of my check where vac and opt days:week is and there are zeros all the way across. I was told I keep my weeks

    When you go from part time to full time UPS pays you for your unused PT vacation days then you have to wait another year as full time before you get any vacations.

    Also to add to this. Once a year goes by do I start over with my weeks so then my 7 years got me nowhere vacation wise. This is new to me because my supervisor told me I keep my vacation weeks. Obviously this person was misinformed then?

    In my region your are considered a new hire employee. You are paid for your vacation earned from 2014 at your part time rate and 20 hours per week earned. If you work 156 reports this year as a full timer you will earn your vacation for 2016 and choose your vacations in seniority order as a fulltime employee.

    Basically, you will be at the bottom of the vacation seniority list, but in 2016 you will still have 7 years of company time. This means that at the 10 year company time choosing you will choose an extra week of vacation as if you have been fulltime for 10 years, but remain choosing your vacation at the 3 year seniority order.

    We have guys in feeder who have 30 years of company seniority with 6 weeks plus and option who chose vacation after guys with 20 years and only 5 weeks plus an option.

    Vacation earned by company seniority and chosen by classification seniority.

    I believe UPS assumes your lay off days will be your vacations. Next year you can pick any of the weeks in January and February that are open.

    Thanks everyone. I finally found a somewhat intelligent sup. He said I can still take the time off but won't get paid and recommended I work at least one day in the week to not mess up my health insurance. Don't see any lay offs in my center, there are always top seniority guys volunteering to take time off.

    Sorry to bring up an old thread but after our payroll person sent out some emails apparently I do not get my pt vacation cashed out so the pt hours I put in during 2014 do not transfer to 2015 now that I ft.

    So your full time seniority date is October 2014. Did they cash out your part time vacation that you had on the books or had you taken it all before you qualified? If they cashed you out you should start accruing vacation at so many days a month as a full timer from October. Look at your paystubs for 2014 and verify how many weeks vacation you took, you may of used them up.

    How does it work when the week you are off has a closed Holiday? An extra days pay or only 4 vacation days are used and you have an extra one?
