    Ah, so you agree with lying and calling in sick to go party?

    I think for the benefit of those not working in the public sector you should explain what a "personal day" is.

    Troubador equates union workers with little old ladies? I assume that's just based on their work habits. For leisure activities they're quite fit and able.

    He acted within his authority (as far as I know). That's not the same as "did nothing wrong."
    You're just digging your hole deeper. So, you lie and take sick days when you're not and want to assume everyone does. Sorry, not everyone does. And attending a union rally is not noble.

    More progressive employers have rejected the medieval "sick day" concept in favor of simply time away from work based on a contractual reward for time served on the job or a matter of an agreed upon contract clause.
    Sorry, but we not talking about grown men. We're talking about adolescents who lie to take off sick leave for other activities. There were people who worked for me whom I trusted and ones I didn't trust. I wouldn't trust you at all.

    Really scratching there. You've back a loser--liars and cheats aren't respected outside unions--and you're trying to save face.
