According to an email sent out by UPS today no personal/vacation days are to be approved for Friday, Jan 2nd. According to the email, you have to work a day in 2015 in order to take a personal/vacation day. If you take a sick day you will lose your holiday pay. However, people were allowed to take this week as a scheduled vacation. Never heard this bull before. Of course I put in for my optional day today, eight days in advance. I'm going to file if I don't get the day off with pay and if forced to work I'm requesting time and a half for all hours worked.
