    Working on your vacation is not permitted here, I’m amazed it’s allowed anywhere actually.

    One thing I will give my old managers credit for is letting us trade vacations if something came up where you really needed a week off.

    I'd file on those if I noticed them. It opens the door to letting a high seniority driver basically reserve a week for a junior driver. It's still wrong even if it's not planned ecactly that way. I try and save my option days for when I might need or wants some days that might be blocked off.

    We never had any trouble with vacation trading. That's what is nice about a small center (or at least it used to be).

    It happened a few times here. That I know of. We are a small center but It's a pain trying to keep up with who's supposed to be off. Who wants to look at the vacation schedule every week? Not me. Most people pay attention during those "prime weeks" though.

    The way it works is they have to be using every driver including TCD’s to run during their vacation.
    Also they go to the bottom of coverage not their route.
    If those things don’t happen you can file for penalty pay as a TCD if not being ran.
    Also seniority if they try to bump you off the weekly bid route for them.
    I’ve made guys working their vacation have to cover. Meanwhile I’m running that Kush for them.
    Hope this helped answer your question.
