Hey so I was wondering if someone can help me understand what is happening with my vacation. I'm a part time loader. Seniority date 10/26/12 I was told that I get 1 week of vacation after 1 year seniority, and that I had to take it between 1yr seniority and the end of the calendar year (had to take it last week of October 2013. Here we are in 2014, and I was told to schedule 2 weeks of vacation. 1 any time of the year, and the 2nd, again, between 2yr seniority date and end of calendar year. (Last week of October) My first vacation is scheduled for next week (6/8 - 6/14), however I did not receive the advanced pay for the vacation. I inquired about it and was told: I got 1 week of vacation 1 year from seniority, I do not get my 2 weeks of vacation until my 2 year from seniority date. I have to take my 2 weeks of vacation between October 26th and before peak. Also my pay stub indicates I have 7.26 accrued hours of vacation (an odd number? I was under the impression that employee vacation, sick days, and rovers renew January 1st of every year. Why aren't mine? Will it always be like this? In 20 years will I have to take 5 weeks of vacation between 10/26 and peak of every year?
