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?
