    How do you go about cashing in vacation time but yet still work? Could use the extra money so dont want to take the time off. Is there a certain period when you can cash out?
     
  2. Every supplement is different. Here we can cash out one week if we have 4 weeks.

    Here you have to pick your buy back weeks before picking vacation weeks.

    first thing you should do is have your head examined for even thinking about giving up a vacation.

    We just ask our sup or manager if you can work your vacation next week. Most times we are so short they agree. Just don't expect a light week. If you want to work they will give you work.

    Depending on where you are, the contract may not have any provisions for you working your vacation. I am in Central. If you pick your vacations when we pick, then you cannot cash them out. However, if you ask, they will put you to work. The thing is, because the contract does not cover the scenario, you may be forced to work a job you may not want.

    I was set to cover a route and a supe called and said, "You are working this other route, that guy is working his vacation." I called the union hall and they took it from there. I worked his route and he had the option to work as the lowest seniority cover guy.

    When I needed the money, I worked the preload during a week of vacation. My daughter had been in a very serious car accident and I worked the preload while she was in the hospital and for 2 weeks of her recovery. Now I have an emergency cushion for that. Then, I did not.

    Maybe he does live with in his means. I'll be cashing in as many as I can this year or working mine. Doing the same when I hit my anniversary this year since I been out all year and I'll just use my fmla next year for vacations

    Sometimes that could be the other option, be homeless. I would rather work my vacation then be homeless.

    I could beg on the streets of a big city and make more in one day than I would working preload for a week..

    Been off all year. vacation pay next year will be very low, rather cash out this year and use my fmla for my kid that is coming any day now for vacation time next year. I rather take the first week un paid on fmla then get a crap vacation check
