Yes, I know.
Tell them about "single day vacations" in the Central Region???
Not sure where you’re getting 15 years/3 weeks. All of our vacations are paid at 50 hours.
Thank you! I was referring to the NMUPSA. For some reason though the tentative agreement skips over Article 6.1-3
Sorry I hit 3 when I meant 4 weeks.
8 years for 3 and 15 years for 4 weeks seems very long is all I thought.
The tentative agreement only showed areas of change. Since the article wasn't changed they didn't add it.
If we have at least 3 weeks of vacation, 8 years or more, we can split up to 2 weeks into single days, or blocks of 2 or 3 days at a time.
So, we can have 10 individual paid days off (plus 2 individual option days) if we want, but then it leaves only 1 week of vacation plus an option week for an 8 to 15 year employee.
It may be nice to get some paid days off here and there, but it only leaves 2 weeks to be taken as full weeks if we take the maximum allotted single days.
I think it's interesting to compare and contrast different supplements.
With the 705 and 710 contracts, it's readily apparent.... there are not any
significant differences between them and the National Master (regional supplements)
as "some" would have you believe.
One major drawback to both 705 and 710's contracts, are after a Local Level
hearing.... it's straight to arbitration. That is a huge financial burden to a Local.
Are you going to arbitrate harassment grievances (that have no monetary
penalty) or supe working grievances for a claim of $20 ?
It's "better than most.... but, not as good as a few."
It's been a long time since I've looked.
They're both the same thing.
Umm.... kind of.
Prior to 1973, there were 6 paid Holidays and 1 optional Holiday. (no sick days)
1973-76, there were 2 option days and 3 sick days.
1976-79, there were 2 option days and 3 sick days.... with 3 choices on
how to use them. (including the 2 or 3 day increments)
In 1979 (first year of the National Master)
We gained an additional Holiday (New Years eve) and the "option week"....
while still retaining the 2 option days.
This is just provided as information.... as I have all the contracts dating back
to March 10, 1968. (and that was prior to the Central Region)
In central pa it is...
1 yr. 1 wk
2 yr. 2 wk
9 yr. 3 wk
15 yr. 4 wk
20 yr. 5 wk
25 yr. 6 wk
You also earn 5 optional days and 5 sick days after your 5th year.
....and the BA's don't get to travel to Clearwater, Florida in January, Denver in the spring, or Traverse City in August for Regional Panels, as well as equally centralized locations like Washington DC, San Diego, or Seattle for National Panels.
But hey, there's always the Unity Conference in Las Vegas?
Here our BA's settle supervisor working grievances for a dime on a dollar, netting you about $2 on a $20 claim and settle harassment grievances as a "matter of record" (if they even get heard at all)....so no problem, right???
I don't set the schedule.
It's mutually agreed to by the company, and the elected officials.
St. Pete (boring)
St.Louis (don't want to get shot)
Traverse City has opportunity's. (fishing, golf, etc.)
Even worse.... stuck in a Hotel....
Realizing, your case is not going to be heard for another 2 days.
(what would @Bubblehead do)
Bubblehead would for sure make the best of a good situation.
When I was in Washington DC in 2016 for my National Panel case, during my two day wait, I went to a Nationals game, Arlington Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial, both Vietnam and Korean War Walls, the Jefferson Monument, the Washington Monument, and the White House.
When I win next Fall we'll hook up and I'll show you how to enjoy yourself after the grueling half day panels?
On your own "dime".
Prove that to the members....
The recession we will be in next month?
Shall we just shut the doors now????
I mean I see no point in going on.
You sure that's not after your 2nd year?
True.... nobody wants to see a slow painful spiral into the abyss.
It’s like the day you’re born you start dying. Who wants to deal with all that?
