Close your eyes and imagine a world where we have 500% more sick time.
Picture the first 100 hours: FSMs can’t question, threaten, harass, or intimidate you for exercising your right to use those hours. Can’t require a doctor’s note because it’s the third sick call on A-days, or on a weekend, or around a holiday.
Visualize the company reimbursing you for that $150 visit to a clinic because your manager nonetheless doubted your loyalty, your dedication to the brand.
Then consider being rewarded for not using your safety net, getting extra vacation days for staying below an approved annual call-out target.
Now open your eyes.
This “fantasy” already exists for our pilots. The company willingly negotiated all of it!
