    Not gonna happen.

    At best you will receive another option day to use as you please.

    Seems like a good trade off. I hate having to go to work the day after Xmas. I'm usually hungover making work suck even more than usual.

    The 22nd is a regular day and the volume picked up that day will be processed on the 26th.

    I have a feeling that we will end up doing the same.

    You must be using Teamster math if you think that losing one day equates to getting 5 in return.

  14. Guess what... Pay me. Charge more in that day to pay for our over time. What about all of the six days people ate working in December. They should get extra time off for that .

    Why not? Lose one-ask for 5-settle on 3. That's just good bargaining.

    Having Thanksgiving, the day after, and a week off gives members one final opportunity to see family during one of the most family-oriented times of the year. I guess you could think of it as a mini-vacation. Christmas week is off limits, and now they want to limit our ability to see family during Thanksgiving and hang out for a few days too? I certainly think it warrants an extra vacation week.

    I threw in the "for employees with at least one year" just because they are also affected by the loss of the day after Thanksgiving as a holiday.

    During negotiations, you don't offer what you actually want. You start with something big, and work towards a compromise. Is what I said really that controversial for a starting point? It's gotta be more than one option day. That's all I'm saying.
