2 weeks after 1 year,3 weeks after 5. At 15 years you get 1 day per year till 20 years, aquiring 4 weeks total.
We have no sick day pay.
I was getting 4 weeks vacation pay until Worldcolor took a week away from me last year. I wonder if QuadGraphic will give it back? I have been an employee over 20 years.

I know, I know... I need to be grateful that I still have a job and do not need to worry about my vacation. I guess if I do not survive the cutbacks, I will have lots of vacation days...

Thanks for the information on the Quad Vacation policy. Can you give us World Color plants any additional information about Quad's other policy's. So far we have heard very little (In Jonesboro) about the other policy's that Quad has.

We just want to know what to expect from Quad. This will be the 6th different name for the Jonesboro plant.

There is no union at Quad, there maybe union members in some of it's newly aquired plants but not for long. I think the whole union issue will die out come January first.

unions will never die out. Trust me and don't be so naive. I think a Union is need more now than ever. The bigger a corporation is the more scandalous it will become. You at Quad may have different experiences, but we at Quebecor/World Color have experienced the abuse. First thing is I hope that Quad does have a mandatory uniform policy so that employees from top to bottom of the chain of command have a visual picture that they are at a place of employment maybe they would start acting more professional.

I only like be around those with a sense of humor if they understand when to be serious. My vacation lol no nothing like that. Just the calm before the storm. No one in here can help in solving my problems I have with the Management and HR of the Merced Plant as I think you have stated before. As for the Quad merger doesn't matter what they offer. No one is born with a job and they are more than welcome to walk. This is sad but true, Merced has a 18.5% umemployment rate. Honestly I would feel more comfortable having a union in place with the unemployment so high.

lost the union in fernley, now the stupidvisory are riding shotgun and they know that the nlrb(no labor rights board) is gong to take its sweetass time to f--k up the union rights and leave the employees thinking that they did the right thing by taking it up the a--. Quad can go the same way Quebecor did they can go TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET!!! And don't come back saying that you don't need a UNION because no matter how much you kiss a--, the stupidvisor will f--k you in the end before they throw in garbage and place you at the curb
