The erosion of our benefits continues. The county has announced it will no longer honor 10 hour employees (meaning the police) with 10 hour holidays.
Beginning labor day 2011 (how appropriate), if you take a holiday, you will only be paid 8 hours, even though we work 10 hour days. You will have to take an additional 2 hours vacation to cover the shortage.
Pretty convenient. We will be forced to burn our vacation time after the county has chosen to reduce the amount of vacation time we can carry over.
The question that hasn't been answered is, if you have to work on a holiday, will you be paid 8 or 10 hours? Any bets?
