I had annual leave stacked up and used 10 days. I’m not arguing the AL part. All I’m saying is it’s trash that we don’t even get 1 EA day for a funeral. Especially when the agency and natca boasts about mental awareness and all that propagandaEven still, it’s not hard to accumulate a solid leave cushion. We all earn about 3 weeks of SL every year. The problem is, too many people want to abuse it and then want a different form of leave/excused absence when something actually happens.
LolYeah I know how tough losing a family member can be, but honestly, if you’ve been in the agency for more than a couple years and don’t have the ability to take a week or two off without burning all of your leave, that’s really your own doing. Especially after nearly a year of reduced staffing schedules, everyone should have plenty of AL and SL.
Haha you should check out some of the benefit packages non-gov jobs have. FAA isn’t superior like you think it is.I’m willing to bet they don’t get 20-30+ vacation days and 14+ sick days a year either
This is still going away from what I’ve been bitching about and that’s the fact we get EA for a lot of BS (Covid) and not even one day for real life events like a funeral. I get EA for boosters though that’s what really matters!
And also it’s ok to say yeah your right. We should get at least 1 day of EA for a funeral and not immediately point fingers to “yeah you should have leave stacked up blah blah blah”. Im not surprised that’s the response though.
