Anyone else being told the exempt sick time limit is 40 hours? We are being told we only get 40 hours per year which is not how the policy reads.

Most of L3 is NOT union. In Utah, it is a right to work state.
unionizing is the last thing we need. while the separate divisions are struggling and managment has its head in the toilet like the rest of us beciasue no one knows what is coming, adding a union bully wont help anything. As soon as all this nonsense settles out and the main power struggles are over things will begin to level out. Instead of looking to get back at them or get what you can out of them see what you can do to make the division you are at be successful. that is the only way to keep jobs. No, Im not a management hack nor HR nor am i a socialist union jerk either.
It's 160 hours is without approval from the next level of management. So your manager's manager needs to approve vacation beyond 160 hours.
That's the policy. We'll see how it plays out in reality.
It's their game, they get to make (and change) the rules.
At least vacation and sick time are still separate pots!
Same. Non-union, professional/technical, salaried exempt and they are unofficially (and not in writing) telling us we only have 160 hrs of vacation time and only 40 hours of sick time.
Many possibilities here.. union? yes? Then check CBAas stated, but you likely wouldn't have asked the question if you were in a union.. Are you non-professional/technical? If so, and you and your colleagues are sick of being pushed around by this bully company? Then why not unionize? Guaranteed you will get some concessions either to avoid the vote or because you succeeded in getting representation.. its unlawful for the company to block efforts to unionize. push back!
If you are professional, then there are rules protecting your pay there too... salaried exempt aren't paid by the hour, so it may be illegal to limit you to "sick hours". Laws vary by state so learn your rights. Guaranteed BB and the Cube aren't keeping a log and tallying their "sick hours"...
Are you part of a union? If so, it's in your CBA
And no roll over of sick time from year to year
Yep, same here. We have been told we only get 160 max vacation and 40 max sick time.
