Quite some disappointment yesterday.
The production line will partially close in the coming days, with the shifts/teams gradually taking their annual two-week summer holidays. Except that the holiday entitlement I accrued with the agency wasn’t transferred to the company after my becoming the latter’s employee. Instead the agency remunerated me, and I’ll only have a single week off, the other being spent with another team.
In a sense, I would work for a double pay during that week. But after seven months I was looking forward to the fortnight off; I’d prefer having the whole two weeks to the extra money. Given that during Christmastime I’ll have to visit my parents again, come next summer I shall have waited for ‘proper-length’ hols for two years.
