    There is an option three now? I know Spanish is two, with English currently one. So what language is next in our society?

    BTW, welcome to BC.

    You have endangered the very fabric of UPS by even broaching this subject. This discussion must end immediately.

    If you've chosen option 3 you should be able to use it anytime you want assuming the time is already credited to you. Just say you're using an option day when you're calling in. Your paystub should have the amount of time you have leftover in hours on the bottom. PTers will use 4 hours and FTers 8 hours per use. If you're unsure of anything bother your FT sup to check how much time you have and if they have any preference on how you go about using it.

    Option 3 is available for you to use anytime. It is 7 paid holidays, now you cant take all of them at once. But you can call in and just say Option 3.

    OP 3 is used to ask permission to be off sick, or it is used to tell UPS that you are sick and will not make it to work that day.
    No translation needed.

    Call your Union business manager, he should be able to provide you with all the info you need. The details of the Opt 3 days vary from one local to another. Sometimes it comes down to interpretation and past precedence.

    I thought that was the whole reason for option 3, so you WOULD NOT HAVE TO SPLANE it to him.

    But then as a practical matter, since you called in and stayed on the phone long enough for them to get mad..........

    Phones are like the internet. You can always hang up. You control what you want to control. You decide how long the conversation will last. But most people dont, and allow the person on the other end of the line to dominate.

    Danny, is correct on the "slanin'" thing.
    The way it works here is, the employee calls, gets sup on the line and says, " I am taking an option 3 day today. See you tomorrow. bye" click ...bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Oh and don't answer the phone if it rings back right away.

    No expaination necessary, just notice.
    Tell them it's none of their business why you aren't coming.

    I wouldn't hang up, nor would I be dominated.
    Hanging up is a display of fear.
    Actually it would be to the contrary for my call.
    I would beat them back to the point where they would be the one to hang up on me.
    This way the next time I call in, the conversation goes differently.
    It happens every few years here when they turn over the center management staff.
    I'll call in to the OMS office and am told I have to talk to the center manager.
    I say sure, put him on.
    He plays his game.
    I beat him down.
    Low and behold, next call in, no static at all.

    On a side note, I'm not familiar with this option 3 thing.
    We do enjoy 2 optional holidays here though, with an 8 day notice required for approval.
    I turn the tables on them by telling them that the "option" is whether or not they pay for the day, as I wont be there either way.
    I don't put in for these days on a whim, I have plans.
    I tell them they might as well pay me so we don't have to go through the same process a couple months down the road.
    Having this latitude is the benefit of maintaining a good attendance record.

    My management team used to try to give me a hard time, now they just say "theres nothing I can do" and hang up

    The center manager can say whatever they want, doesnt mean you have to answer. If you want to really piss them off make something up. Tell them you have to wax your dragon for the weekends dragon surfing contest
