    DTS question


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I have vacation next month and it's the first time I have it while being a lineholder. I used to bid days off after and before my vacation while on reserve to get max days off.
    I understand that DTS will drop any trips touching my vacation, but I won't get paid for it. I've also heard people saying always DTS. I don't want to loose a lot of pay by doing that so I don't know if it's better to choose a line with days off after my vacation.
    my question is: If I have lines touching my vacation on both sides, can I DTS only one? If so, how do I do that?
    If i DTS both of them, can I pick up OT?

    Thanks

    DTS will drop anything it touches. I do that all the time with a transition vacation and have ended up with 20 days off with just on vacantikn block.

    As for the OT question, I will defer to someone else.

    FYI you have up to 24 hours after bids close to decide to DTS. I always do it this way. You send the RF 100 DTS or email swaps n drops. This way you can see what line you got and figure out about pay etc. Some lines actually make sense to DTS. 21 hours of pay for the week. DTSing a 12 hour 4 day just makes sense. Anyway food for thought.

    Like EGF said you have 24 hours after the bids close to choose your best option. DO NOT SELECT BOTH OPTIONS (DTS and SLIDE) on you bid mask. Wait until the bids close and see what you were awarded.

    If you select both options, the Transition team will SLIDE 1ST to de-conflict your vacation and then DTS if there is anything touching.

    Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure you cannot pick up OT on days that you DTS-ed. You can, however pick it up on days that fall within your awarded vacation block.

    CS has been allowing it due to the current staffing.
