    I urgently need next Monday off and it’s my Sixth punch because I’m a Tuesday to Saturday driver. I filed a request three weeks ago and haven’t gotten a response yet. The dispatcher said it’s most likely to be denied. I don’t have any option or sick days yet.
    Is Sixth day punch mandatory during peak? Any advice? Thanks

    Is there any possible way that you can reschedule your Monday appointment?

    I was going to say booty call but I thought appointment would sound better.

    If you bang in during Peak with zero days on the books you may as well start looking for a new job.

    If they want you to work just call in that morning an hour or 2 before start and tell them you won't be in. There will be plenty of work left for you on Tuesday I'm sure.

    And I can do that without option days?

    Do you have a attendance problem?
    How long have you been with UPS?

    Just call out sick if you don't have a attendance problem and don't worry about it.

    They won't be happy but you will not lose your job.

    Do you really need the entire day off? Call in and then offer to come in after your appointment.

    Yes-----you are a newbie trying to become permanent. You have zero paid time on the books. This is Peak-----unless you are in a hospital bed you show up to work or you start looking for work elsewhere.

    If you are a Tuesday through Saturday driver and they havent called for special operations ie that 7day 70 hour work week bs in your region then they cant discipline you for not working a sixth punch. Even in peak.

    Why do you feel the need to use such threatening language?

    NOBODY gets fired during peak.

    Pay no attention- he always wanted to be a supervisor but didn't make it. Now he can pretend that he is one on the internet. Lol.
