As an RCA, I know I don't earn vacation time or sick leave, but I need a break. I filled out the paperwork requesting 4 days off. I checked the calendar ahead of time, and only one person (full time carrier) was scheduled off for one of the days I requested. PM denied my request saying my job was to be available whenever needed. In the 2 1/2 years I've been working, this is my third request. First time was for one day, and it was approved (over a year ago). Second time was three days and denied. So does anyone know the rules that apply to RCAs time off?? A co-worker told me it was supposed to be first come, first served. But management doesn't seem to agree. Can we get time off??
