1 year should be 1 week vaca and 1 optional week for a total of 2 weeks, then another week at 5 years and another week at 9 years and then 15 years. Im not sure if you get another 1 at 20 years or 21 then 1 more at 25 for a total of 7 in the chicago area. If your steward was any good he should have came and meet you by now and handed you a copy of your contract. Just ask him and he will get you 1.I'm not talking about the vacation bidding process. I'm curious about how long it takes to get two, three, etc. weeks of vaca/per/sick days.
I know that after my first year of part time seniority I recieved a weeks worth of vaca and a weeks worth of per/sick days.
Last year (I believe) I should've recieved two weeks of vacation days, plus per/sick days, but I became a full time driver and was paid out on my preload vac/per/sick days.
Somone told me that my preload seniority counts towards my vac/per/sick days progression. Does anyone know if that's true, and what the progresion schedule is?
You get sick days?It's been a long time since I got my 2nd week so I couldn't tell you 100% when you acquire that 2nd one. But after that you get a 3rd week at 10 years and a week every 5 years after up to 6 weks of vacation. You will max out at 6 plus 1week personal and 1 week sick, totalling 8 weeks off per year. The time frame is based off total company seniority and not FT or PT status.
My seniority date is July 29, 1993 so when I pick vacations next year in January I will get 3+1 and must pick that +1 week after my seniority date.
I guess oldpadday needs to specify where he is located.You get sick days?

1 year= 1wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
2 year= 2wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
10 year= 3wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
15 year= 4wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
20 year= 5wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
25 year= 6wk vac, 1 opt wk, 1 personal
*Your option week can be taking 1 of 3 ways.
1) You take the pay/58 hours
2) You take it as a vac week/58 hours
3) You take it as 7 individual 8 hour days to use at YOUR discretion when ever you want and mngt cannot do a thing about it.
Now, I'd have to ck, but I believe new hire PTers do not receive the op week till after 3 years of service under the current contract
