I'm working in the Central Region, and I'm in a small center with 10 current employees on our morning preload sort. We have a couple of people who have been there a long time and between the two of them they get 10 weeks of vacation. That's 2.5 months of the summer gone before any of the other 8 people get to choose. I was looking in our Central Region Supplement under article 16 and it seems that for 1-8 employees only 1 person can be off each week but for 9-14 employees you can have 2 people off each week. Now here's where it gets interesting. Two of our employees just got hired to be permanent. One got hired at the end of May and one got hired in like September. So here's the question, do those guys count toward the total of 10 even though they haven't worked a full year yet, or do we have to wait until after they work a full year for them to count toward our total so we can start picking two vacations per week? Based and the current situation I've described, how many vacations each week should we be allowed to take? Thanks.
