Just a few questions for the folks on the board.
So I was reading the CF leave manual today, because I'm sicker than a dog. The policy of the squadron at the moment is that if you're sick, goto the MIR and get a chit... Makes sense... Follows the orders, and that's what the military is run on.
But what if you've got kids to look after, no vehicle, or you can't make it?
I'm a shift worker, and I'm on afternoons this week... As I was reading the leave manual it said that the CO can grant 2 days...
Now are these two days at his discretion or is it the responsibility of the sergeant to speak on his behalf?
This has been an ongoing problem, especially with it being cold and flu season... I've seen guys working on the plane, drugged up on medication, because they're not able to get a day off to try and recuperate. I also understand that people abuse the sick days, and take them on days when they're not sick...
Really I'm hoping that a few Mcpls and Sgt's on this forum could help me understand this reasoning they have... It used to be, if you're sick, take a day off... If you're sick for more than one day, goto the MIR and get a chit, because you're a lot sicker than you realized, or you may need a few more days.
It sucks because my g/f works in the morning, and I don't feel like lugging my son into the MIR (who's also sick) and wait 3-4 hours to be seen, and only given an afternoon shift off...
Thanks for the input lads, I appreciate it.
p.s And if anyone has some suggestions I could pass up my CoC it'd be appreciated. I'd like to get the ball rolling on this, because someone's going to get hurt... We work on 250 million dollar aircraft, and having a foggy mind could lead to some pretty serious repercussions.
inb4 stop whining air force pansy.
