Longtime employees at Aetna are losing five days of their vacation time from 33 to 28 days.  The move is designed to cut expenses, according to a report in the Hartford Courant.

Starting Jan. 1, an Aetna worker who has 25 years or more with the company will essentially lose a week of paid time off. Currently, about 2,500 workers companywide, roughly 1,125 of them in Connecticut, are eligible for the 33 days.
