No more than two days off prior to or after leave come July. Seems the new directive was attached to the usual if they don't like it they can leave msg.

The trainers have had a similar restriction attached to their leave for years. Has the reasoning ever been explained or even justified? No. Can any demonstrable business or efficiency case be made for the practice? No.

It is spite and petty antagonism pure and simple.

I'm afraid dropped is correct. There is a limit of 5 days around leave for trainers and on a normal roster for days off string. This does not exist for the line. Different rules.

I believe Dropp was referring to a two day restriction which was posted previously. I agree that the 5 day restriction has been around for ages, but the 2 day restriction is both new and unwelcome.

Obviously, with more days allocated as leave, less days will be available as off days. The days that are available need to get placed elsewhere in your roster to make it legal, 1 in 8, 2 in 14 etc...

Would be interested if anyone got any leave on the dates they bid for in this new round. The dates offered to me are 6 months different to what I asked. Of the 42 days leave now offered, 26 days are effectively forced leave nowhere near where I asked for.

Freaking muppets strike again.

Don, on the basis that the "system" would even let me bid for leave, despite numerous emails, phone calls, and even a visit to fleet, I don't genuinely hold out any hope! It must be because my pool of owed days exceeds 42 days, or perhaps they just don't like me.

That's weird Monach. I had in excess of 40 days leave owing to me. Did you already have 42 days leave this year prior to this round?

On the 8th of June if its an extension of already awarded leave, otherwise on the 10th 3 months in advance of the leave month in question.

Awards for extensions will be available in LASS by 1500, Wednesday 08 June 2016.

Got nothing, apart from the 53 days still in my bank, (worst interest rates ever), anyone else got anything???

I was waiting for the "system down, manpower issues, sorry for the delay" email, but maybe I'm the only one?!?!?

A bit harsh, where else can you deposit 53 days in a bank and add 42 more every year?

Still says "pending" as I managed to break through the barrier of monkeys and speak to an organ grinder.
Anyone actually get any leave?

I was on the leave module the other day, and saw some "allocated' leave in a month that was of no use whatsoever habibis. So I rejected it.

Leave walla, said so you are rejecting it, yup never asked for it. I want summer leave. So yes, there is leave out there. Why, someone with so much in the bank was not offered before me, with actually not much in the bank, dunno. Maybe fleet orientated.
