    At this point in my career I wished I wasn't a truck driver, no fun any longer. Thank you for the compliment ( I think ?)

    Well you better call HR and let them know that the policy manual is wrong then. Unless you were hired after 1/1/2011.

    You must have 0 or positive balance by the end of 2018.
    Any time taken in 2019 and forward, you must have PTO time available or no can do.

    So it’s going to be a balancing act. You don’t want too much PTO time in case you leave the company, but you need to have some saved up to take a vacation. God forbid you get sick. There goes your vacation time that you paid for a rental/airfare for. Another roll of the dice and possible win for the company.

    Correct if you’re sick early in the year and use pto time you may not have enough time to take a scheduled vacation later in the year. It’s going to be ugly in the later part of the year for some.

    And don't forget anything carried over from the previous year is STOLEN upon separation...whether you quit, are fired, or retire. Heaven forbid you keep what you've EARNED.

    Did you not dabble on the mechanic side (I may be confused)? Have you thought about transitioning to management. Pay sucks, hours long, and ass chewings go deep. Talk to your Manager, you might be a good candidate.

    No not me on the mechanical side , you wouldn’t want me working on your truck. I’m the last one they want in management I’m not a brown noser type.

    And the lawyer would do what? We chose to stay for the new policy and we can't lose what we had earned under the old policy. There's something about lawyers that a lot of drivers just find magical, I guess.

    Not sure how it works at other barns. You must give back the way you were awarded it. Meaning during the vacation bidding if you were awarded a week and don't have 40hrs you must give back the whole week. It happened twice at my barn and a low on the totem pole driver like me got some prime Turkey day and X-mas holiday time off. That's what happens when you want to run close to zero

    My wife's is use it or lose it by her anniversary date every year. This at least keeps everyone from trying to burn PTO at the same time and during the holidays each year. But still, she holds a couple days as " just in case " that need to be spent that last week. She works under a bargained agreement. So don't anyone start your " a union would stop that " :horseshit:.
