Hey guys, I'm probably wrong, but better safe than sorry. Make sure all the vacation, optional and sick time counts. I was lucky and got hired FT off the street in 86 so I'm pretty up on that. One of our FT preloaders that was maxed out on vacation started taking all 6 weeks in a row, all of July and half of August. He was diabetic and had a bunch of other health issues. The first time he took all 6 weeks in a row, he ran out of health coverage. Turns out the company did not pay into health when you are on vacation. He worked 34 years, and after that first year, he had to send a bundle down to Union hall to stay current. Pay stubs still have your running total of hours on them don't they? Just pay attention. You work too hard to lose a dime over a couple hour glitch.
