Forced to use single vacation day for call in

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by Ryan Greider, Feb 19, 2020.

  1. Can ups force you to use svd days when you call in. For a full time driver. This sentence is what they are using to justify it. It's the last sentence in the approval section of article 16. These days shall be paid for the first five days that the
    employee does not work, provided they were scheduled to
    work on these days and provided there is coverage for the

    So I'm guessing you're in the Central region.

    You don't have sick days there and they gave you a extra vacation week because of it.

    So you can just elect to call out sick and not be paid when ever you feel like it?

    Sounds like they did you a favor.
    It was either vacation day or DISCIPLINE.

    We don’t know the OP’s attendance. This isn’t communist Russia either, people can call out of work if need be.

    From the same section

    "Single vacation day(s) selected during the calendar year must be selected, in writing, a minimum of eight (8) working days prior to the requested date(s). The Company must approve or deny the requests within
    one (1) working day of the request. Single vacation days may be granted by mutual agreement outside of the eight (8) working day request provision outlined above."

    Did you ask in writing 8 days before?
    Did you mutually agree to it?
    If not tell them to eat :censored2: and die and they owe you a vacation day

    There are no sick days in central.
    You were hired to work. Not sit at home in the bed.
    Either go to work, or we will get someone who can.

    They do it at my building sometimes then try to play dumb when someone speaks up about previous call-off not burning a day showing as ‘Called In’ on UPSers

    Me “Hey it’s Trip, I’m not gonna be able to make it in today”

    Supervisor “well what’s the....”

    End of story.
