Really thinking about quitting

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by No_Member_Name, Mar 26, 2019.

  1. After four years, I’m thinking about calling it quits. Running a business and working all night is taking its toll and the business is starting to suffer. Bring in $190-$220 a week is just not worth loosing the blusiness. The only thing that worries me is not having health care.

    My question is. What will happen to my unused sick/vac/opt days?? Will they be paid out since they were earned or lost? Thank you

    I know i know, i won’t let the door hit me on the way out lol

  6. What about your health insurance?
    And you know if you work less than 5 years you lose your pension.

    ...and you have to work a certain number of hours in each of those years for it to count as a year.

    The OP may be SOL and not even know it.

    I would try to get out after ensuring your scrap of the pension is secured.

  10. Better use your sick and option days up.

    Got a health issue that may qualify for fmla? If so, if you get your work days reduced to a couple days a week theyll pay out your vacations for the other 3 days.
    Maybe work one day a week on fmla and still have healthcare for a few months (about 3) while you shop around for more healthcare coverage before you quit.
    You will probably have one week held back... not that you have many... to take.

    Just one option...if you qualify.
  11. That's pretty cheap. How much for two?

  19. Went to H.R and the h.r girl sed that she wasn’t sure and to go speak to the shop steward. Went to speak to shop steward and he told me that he wasn’t sure and that my best bet would be to just complete the 5 years (march 2020)and use the days. That way I’ll have some kind of pension. Came on brown cafe and was told to use meth and set loose the blusiness lol

    Before you quit, you may want to get a letter from the company saying you're "vested" in the pension and, precisely, how many hours for each of those 5 years you worked.

    You may have years that you didn't work the required hours...IDK.

    Safeguard that letter so when the company tries to screw you, many years from now, you'll have proof.
