    Okay, so in 2010 I was on disability for 7 months. Last year (the year of 2011) I scheduled 3 weeks of vacation, no problems. Today I go in to schedule vacations and they say that I only have 15 hours accrued. Shouldn't last year (2011) be the year that I get shorted the vacation hours because in 2010 I was on disability. I dont understand why my 2012 vacations should be affected by my disability that took place in 2010.

    Hopefully thats not too confusing. I'm really kinda stumped about this whole thing. Trying to get some opinions before I talk to the union rep on Monday.

    The hours accrued last year affect this year. Simple. They screwed up giving you 3 weeks last year and are now trying to make up for it. Too late. If you worked a full year last year, you get your earned vacation time. Make sure you get the union rep involved. It is their job to keep track of this, not yours.

    They are correcting their error by only allowing him to take the 15 hours.

    This is kind of like them paying u to much and u not saying anything. Then when they find out they start taking it out of your check. Like unstate said playing stupid isn't a defence to not owning them. They are being nice they could go back and say you owe them the money for the weeks you took and got paid for by mistake.

    Doesn't the contract cover this? Yes. Reasonable timeframe. Over a year, is not reasonable.

    Do you think I have a leg to stand on in this? Seems to me like it they're mistake.

    I do. But, we don't all agree. Talk to your BA.

    But, when I worked at my father's pension office, we did keep track of that stuff. 15 years ago.

    When I was on comp, 18 months, I was allowed a one time per contract "buy back" of my vacations for the following year. Mind you this is in 705 so it may not apply in your situation.

    Here, you must work one day in the previous year, to get you vaca pay. I know.​ 687.
