Or lack thereof. Unless I missed it, the master contract does not prescribe any specific progression for disciplinary action as a result of attendance issues and neither does the southern supplement. So, this seems to indicate that the type and frequency of discipline is left up to the employee's supervisors. Does this mean that an employee can be given a termination notice after their first missed day of work (let's assume the employee has reached seniority)? I see nothing in the contract requiring they first receive a warning/suspension letter. Additionally, if employee A misses 3 days and employee B misses 5 days can A be suspended/fired if B isn't? I have never seen a company this large have such an opaque attendance policy.
