Day off during peak

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

Unfortunately no. And how did you know I have an appointment? I didn’t say that lol
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.

I’ve been with ups just over a year. I’ve had seniority since July. Never missed a day of work.

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.

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

NOBODY gets fired during peak.
