no holidays : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I work at a small Canadian hospital lab and was just told today no vacation will be approved last week of dec and 1st 3wks Jan. Lots of talk as to what this means. I expect to see more and more of this, sure raised concerns of co-workers.

I've wondered if this 'no holiday' policymight boomerang on management. I suspect a lot of people are going to be 'sick' the first week of January!

My brother-in-law, who is a sherriff's deputy in a small town in Pennsylvania, has been told "no vacation" for the first couple weeks of January 2000...

PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric in Northern California). No vacation for management in December and bargaining unit employees to follow suit. No vacation for sheriffs/policeman in our county.

...No time off for us until April and then no time off the last week of December. BwwAAHHAAHHAA! They think I will be anywhere in the vicinity in December? Yah! Right! CLUELESS!

Even Emergency and Law Enforcement personnel will be torn between family and community responsibility. Once back at the old homestead, I will be available to help in the neighborhood-if only to help out my Mom at first-any way I can.
