    If I work 5 days and take a paid sick day, do I still get time and a half on the sixth day of work or the regular rate?

    If you work six days, you get paid time and a half on the sixth day but I plan to take a paid sick day on the 5th day and work the sixth day. I'm wondering since sick days are paid, will that fifth day still count as a working day and thus allow me to still collect time and a half on the sixth day.
  4. I never took a sick day and worked a Saturday so I can't help you with that But I have worked a Saturday when a holiday feel during the week and it was considered a 6th punch and I got paid overtime for that.

    Yeah, that answers my Question. Seems as long as its paid, it counts as a work day.

    Why take a sick day?
    Are you sick?
    If you aren't it is dishonesty.
    Hope you get fired.

  7. It should. Just like if you didn't work all week and asked to get paid for a sick day it counts as a punch for your pension and health care.

    But this is a supplemental issue, not a Master issue.

    Under the new contract, the sixth punch is double if I remember correctly.

    What region are you in and do you have a rider. I don't believe it will count. I think @Mugarolla has explained this before. I could be wrong.

    I don't believe the Master has any 6th punch language. You sure that's not regional?
