Sick Leave

I received my allotment of leave a few months back on my anniversary date. I just don't know what they can be used for. My paystub shows 4 different types and I was told that one is for sick days, one being vacation days, another being an option week, and the last being four floating option days. Please correct me if i'm wrong.
Now can any or all of that leave be rolled over yearly? Do you lose it if you don't use it or does it get payed out?

Our current contract only pays for unused sick days. The new contract will pay for both unused sick and personal days, although I would encourage you to use them. None of these days carry over to the following year if unused--you will get a check for any unused days usually 2 weeks before the end of December. I am not familiar with option weeks.
 
Thanx again.
I'm not used to getting so much leave. I hope your correct, although I wish you could roll all of it over to the next year. I had heard that they pay some of it out on your anniversary date and some leave gets rolled over.

Sick days roll over and accumulate. I think you can have a maximum of around 420 sick hours built up (someone correct me if I'm wrong). After that they cash out your sick days. If you retire with these sick hours unused they cash you out. You get 5 paid sick days per year.

Unused vacation is payed out...

We get paid for our unused sick days and personnel days and have been since i have been there over 6 years
 
all these different answers for the same question. This is why I believe that there should be ONE Master Contract with the only supplements existing for the sole purpose of cost of living differences around the country.

Does anyone know how many sick and/or personal days a full-time driver gets in Central States? I cannot find any info in either the MC or the Central Supplement that explains this difinitively. I used to get two personal days as a part-timmer and I cannot even find where it allots for that in the contract or the supp so I am wondering where in the heck the correct info is. Thanks.

It's in the Supplement Art.15 Sec.1 para 3. You get 2 optional days every year after your second anniversary.
