More ideas for 2009

E.T.I. 2009

Would something like this work if you had a choice?

  • Eight hours of vacation per month after six months of service.
  • Employees receive increased vacation for increased years of state service:
    - seven hours of vacation per month for up to three years of service;
    - 8 hours per month for up to 10 years;
    - 12 hours per month for up to 15 years;
    - 14 hours per month for up to 20 years;
    - 16 hours per month for 20 + years.
  • Employees may opt for annual leave, in lieu of separate vacation and sick leave, and can opt to enroll in or leave the program each July.
  • Employees enrolled in annual leave receive combined vacation/sick leave of:
    - 12 hours per month for up to 10 years of service;
    - 16 hours per month for over10 years, to 15 years.
    - 18 hours per month for over 15 years up to 20years;
    - – 20 hours per month for 20+ years.
  • Nine hundred twenty (920) hours of vacation or annual leave can be carried into the next calendar year.
  • Employees must be paid for unused vacation or annual leave upon leaving state service.
  • Could make a great going away day and help make up for the cliff. What do you think? Should we go for something like this? Find the comments link under this post and leave your ideas.

    1. Union Brother and Sister,

      I really like the annual leave versus the separate vacation time and sick time. The combined annual leave make much more economic sense for workers and management. I see many people using and abusing ’sick time’ and then there are others who follow the rules. This combined anuual leave may reduce the abuse of sick leave.
      Great Idea,

      brother steve

    2. I think it is a great idea too. I would not go for it unless it was to save something else, and I could still use my time (sick) any time I wanted.
