  1. I live in florida and would like to know if they shut down my local hub will we still be paid the 3 1/2 daily guarantee?I'll be proactive because i know it will be asked before i recieve answers. Im a three year senior employee and i have no vacation left and only have 3 option days left.

    Last I knew you had to punch in on time to get the guarantee. If they close down no pay unless you burn an option or sick day.

    If they call an hour before your shift, that there will be layoffs (or closing) you get your guarantee. pure speculation tho

    If they call you before your shift and tell you to stay home due to operations being suspended you do not get your daily guarantee.

    Don't even worry about it they won't shut down your hub for anything short of Nuclear(sp?) War.

    Nuclear is one of those words that many people mis-pronounce. The Prez hasn't helped.

    Realtor is another one.....I hate it when people say real-a-tor. It's pronounced real-tor.

    Like chim-a nee (that's another one)

    So much to teach and so little time to get it all done. :dissapointed:

    Due to act of God then no. You can use an otion day to avoid missing pay.

    there is an emergency clause.
    Check your contract, call your local.

    Those are easy. Try Worcester (wuss - ter). A lot of people say Warchester or Worcestershire (like the sauce).

    Anyone remember that movie? A Russian sub runs aground off Mass, and they pronouced at Gloc-kes-ter?

    Actually there was a facility on the coast closed early today and the drivers brought back because of flooding conditions.

    With the way the storm has been, I wouldn't be surprised if this happens again later this week. From everything I'm hearing, it's not that powerful of a storm, the big issue is lots and lots of rain and it's really not moving.

    Man, MA is really screwed up! How about the town of "Billerica"? Outside of New England it looks like "Bill-a-R-ika", instead we just say Bill-ricka. Go figure!

    We have Gila Bend (Hila Bend). It is so easy to tell who the forners (foreigners) are. They can never pronounce it right.

    I am not certain but I think that any time that they call you before your shift and tell you that you are not needed I think you lose the guarantee and have to use personal time if you wish to get paid for that day. P/T sups please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
