This is posted on 638 Facebook and on our union board. You get one hour of sick time for every 30 hours you work. Maximum of 48 hours per year. Plus keep your option week.Our biggest issue with the new sick time language is that Minnesota has passed a law requiring employers to give their employees sick time starting next year. If the language (no sick time) was the same as last contract, UPS would have been required to give us sick days on top of our vacation starting next year, but now UPS is fulfilling their lawful obligation for sick time with the new language. Last I heard the union and UPS have been going back and forth trying to figure this one out.
After nearly 2.5 months of ongoing discussions, we are happy to announce that all Local
638 members in Minnesota who work at UPS will be able to use MN Sick Days no
matter what option you choose for your contractual Sick Week. To be clear, this
means you may use your Sick Week as a selected week of vacation, split it up
into 5 individual sick days, or work the week and collect the payout and STILL be
eligible for the MN Sick Days.
