Vacation scheduling time is here.  We need all of the vacation requests in by November 15th.  Employees who have both yard and road service qualify for vacation by attaining 240 inflated days using the following formula:

1: Multiply each basic day worked in yard service by 1.6.

2: Multiply each basic day worked in road service by 1.3.

3: Add the days together.  If the days add up to 240 days or more, you qualify for vacation.                    

More information on this is contained in the 1986 UTU Agreement.  We need you to enter your vacation requests in the computer and also put them on paper in the UTU box 6 in the crew lobby.  This way all of the forms are placed in one location and the local chairmen can meet to do vacation on November 16th.  We need to get the vacations in so that members wanting to take vacations in early 2013 can make plans accordingly.  The form can be downloaded here.
