How can you be mad at unlimited vacation?
PTO changes are great for new hires but bad for anyone that has more than 10 years in the company. Seems like they are trying to come up with unique ways to get new talent in but they are ignoring the dedicated employees.
Our VP just told us they have a conference call this week to roll out the info on PTO for 2020.
The meeting in Tampa was salaried only. We were told only that we must accrue time, you cannot "borrow" against your time, and there is no vacation sell and absolutely no payout of earned or accrued PTO when leaving the company.
Some employees were told that SEA was eliminating vacation sell to be used for benefits. So of course, now that people will have their accrued time they want to find a way to screw us even more.
Please keep in mind that if/when they do post that they are changing our time off benefits to accrual based, any time you "borrow" against has to be repaid - helpful to know when they decide our job is unnecessary and we lose the meager payout paying off the time off you dutifully earned working here.
I think the big shots are getting nervous about the “U” word!!
RE: The lawyer in tampa...
Do we know what the specifics at all with this is? Is it in regards to employees being p-ss-d off about the changes and someone threatened something? That might explain why it has not yet been announced here in orlando. I am sure the backlash from our team will be heard loudly. Its already going around and those of us that know are not happy.
This honestly seems like another way to push people into quitting that have been here a while. Someone like myself that has earned extra time and will see it taken away would leave meanwhile they could replace me with someone new at a lower pay-rate and didnt know the "good ol days" and thus wont cause a ruckus over it. And whoever doesnt get p-ss-d off and leaves.. well we have layoffs for the rest of us which im still hearing will occur soon and the new corporate building opening will be around the same time. So makes sense.
And I heard that a lawyer is scheduled to meet with staff in Tampa to discuss employee engagement. I’ll guess that it is related to the new policy roll out. Making magic!!!!
Haven't heard, but I'd wager it will be a significant reduction since total allowed time between the various types of accrual was the one area we were very well off comparatively.
