Is vacation/sick pay/payed holidays a company policy or is it in the union contract?
It is a benefit negotiated by our union.
If it was up to the company you would be punished for getting sick.
Union baby! And by the way, all you folks in non-union jobs, working 40 hour weeks, getting paid vacations, sick days, etc, thank unions for that. Something to think about with Labor Day coming up.
Sick days? What are those? No sick days in my local ( part of Central States). If you didn't work you didn't get paid. There was an extra option week of vacation where you could take either time off or extra pay but thats not the same.
You can break up a vacation week into single days and use those as sick days.
yes, you can do that now (previously you couldn't) but still are supposed to schedule the days in advance. As if you knew you would be sick that day.
We can break up a vacation week into SVD days, but those are similar to option days and most times they deny them. No sick days for us at all, no big deal as even with an unpaid day off most get 40 hrs in anyways. Some will take one week of vacation payoff and bank the check and pay themselves for sick days as needed.
