Just wanting to know where to find out our paid holidays. Are we working on July 5th?
Upser.com we are off for July 5.
Holidays are listed in the NMA and on the UPS calendar.
Here is a good rule of thumb:
If the national holiday is on a Saturday our schedule does not change and we get an extra day's pay.
If the national holiday is on a Sunday our schedule does change--we do not work the following day and are paid for the day off.
There are 2 UPS "holidays' that are not national holidays. The day after Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve are UPS holidays and our operations are limited on those 2 days (delivery of premium products only).
Us being off on Monday July 5 is the only reason I took vacation this week, so I get that extra day tacked on.
Don't you know how to google?
Some people may be required to work on a named holiday. Holiday pay is guaranteed, but the day off is not. On July 5th it's very unlikely, on the day after Thanksgiving it's almost a sure bet that the lower seniority people will be working. There may also be some critical feeder and shuttles that operate on a holiday.
I got it on good authority that it's in the CONTRACT!!!!! YOU DO HAVE A CONTRACT, DON'T YOU?
It's also a sure bet that this higher seniority person will be working. It is such easy money, especially when we load the package cars.
And to be able to pick the rte you wanna take..............................
When I sign up I also write down the route that I would like to run for that day.
LOL We don't have to pick ahead of time. I weigh my options. The lightest rte is not always the fastest or the closest.
