Ok, this has been happening for over a year with different managers. We've been making several changes in our building, which includes new FT managers (4 in the last year). This one currently came a few months ago, and seems to have his head on straight. I requested in the beginning of the month the last week of this month for vacation and was OKd. It happened that I had Labor Day off too before I returned, so I had the 5 days+weekend+holiday. On Tuesday when I showed up, he acted like he didn't know I had vacation but told me everything was good and that I would get paid the vacation week. This morning I look at my paycheck, and this guy has taken the last of my OPTIONAL days and put them in my check, but didn't touch my 40 vacation hours, so I got paid for let's say 3 personal days instead of a vacation week. What the hell? I'm pretty , especially considering I bust my ass and my child began school this week, and of course we live paycheck to paycheck. Point of this post is to say how tired I am of these full time managers "messing up" and wondering what can I really do about these apparent errors? I am going to explain to him how he screwed me and how I now have to go about the week without a paycheck (what I was paid was less than 100 dollars with union dues taken out). He isn't going to give a flying of course.. What can I do besides being ? Now it appears that I have 0 optional days, but still 40 weeks vacation. I want my 2 personal days back, and 20 hours of my vacation pay to be deducted and paid out to me like it is supposed to. I get direct deposit but I'm not going to spend the check because it was incorrectly tendered to me. Could really use some assistance and help as to what to do. Can I call the union? What should I say? I work my ass off like everyone else and I am dumbfounded as to how these same "errors" can be made. He obviously didn't code my check right (that's how I was lied to--err, how I understand it) but I need it fixed. I don't want to have to wait until next week but I'm sure I will have to. So done with UPS....5 years of loading 4 rails a night and I feel as if I get blatantly disrespected repeatedly, especially when I try to use the days/hours that are supposed to be ENTITLED to me. What, can I not take a ing day/week off? I'm fuming.
