    I think that's the policy. They just can't force you negative.

    My understanding us that if you call off you must use PTO if you have it. If they ask you or our forced to sit then it your choice. Either way you can't got into the negative

    I can’t wait to see what happens later this year when I don’t have enough time banked to take a scheduled vacation. I’m planning to cancel one week if I have to so it won’t be a big deal and it’s not in the summer so it won’t screw someone else that wanted the week. I bet a lot of people will be canceling weeks?

    You can still go negative 40 this year but you have to be at least to zero before the end of the year, then no more negative in 2019.

    I understood that policy to be in effect this year. Thanks for clearing that up.

    My understanding, 2018 also. I’ll know next paycheck because I was potentially negative in PTO hours that week.

    I carried 102 hours over in January. I don't really worry about going in the negative.

    They can burn your PTO for any absence. Sick time, additional bereavement, STD, FMLA. Anything.
    We have been told if you leave for a Dr appointment after only working say 6 hrs, they can take 2 PTO hrs. Whatever it takes to make an 8 hr day.

    If you are ever in doubt, the policy book is on your portal. All that stuff is in there. It's actually pretty interesting to look through it.

    I tried reading part of that when a flex driver bumped me from my linehaul spot. Each barn has a different way of doing things. Same since I started here. That book is written in pencil! But thanks.

    Ever been to a barn that puts the chocks on the passenger side ? Ever been to a barn where they put the chocks on the driver side ? And they both tell you, it's policy. If they can't even understand that and do it uniformly, what makes you believe they will do anything right ?

    One hand does not now what the others doing. Not only do they lack communication with their employees they are horrid at running or establishing a functional management structure.

    When they started PTO (paid time off), it erased the line between sick time and vacation time.

    Works great for those of us who rarely used sick time. Others made sure they made good use of it.

    Can't establish a " functional management structure " ( sure don't believe you are a truck driver, city kid ) when they are all quitting and getting fired or forced to retire. They are actively eliminating the very thing you speak of.

    Sure did. Before I retired, I scheduled a bunch of PTO time.
