    The Teamsters agreement with UPS states that any employee diagnosed with COVID-19 will get 10 days paid leave, correct? Due to the CDC's new guidelines, my state has just changed their testing procedures due to the severe shortage of test kits. They will no longer test persons with just a fever and cough. Testing will only be performed on those with fever, cough, and shortness of breath (serious cases). Folks with the milder symptoms will be told by doctors to "assume" they have COVID-19 and that they should self-quarantine until fever-free for three days.
    So, will UPS still pay employees who haven't been officially tested?

    My guess would be that UPS will try to avoid paying people without an "official" test.

    The CDC also recommends 14 days of self-quarantine. The Union got us 10 days.

    You ever hear of weekends?

    10 paid days is two full weeks.

    Not everyone will be diagnosed on Day 1 of 14 days.

    Math is simple. If I get sick on a Tue. wait till Thurs. to see a doctor. Thats 3 days of no compensation. Then diagnosed with coronavirus 6-8 days later, which will then start the 14 days. If you don’t coronavirus you get nothing. Math is easy, but this is Algebra.

    Wrong. Its retroactive paid leave if you have been diagnosed OR ordered to quarantine...read the actual press release. Lays it out pretty clearly

    And you get paid half of that. Better then nothing. Or you could always quit?

    Then you file for FMLA for anything past the ten days. Quit your :censored2:ing crying already, Jesus Christ.

    Incorrect.

    If you are diagnosed with covid-19 they will pay you 3 days till short term disability starts.

    If you are told to quarantine by one of the highlighted below you will get paid leave up to 10 days.

    State disability would probably be better than FMLA.

    Any thing would be better than hearing him complain.

    You don’t need to be tested. You only need to be quarantined by either your doctor, your states health dept, or a UPS doctor.
