Hello, we follow the NMFA and NY/NJ Supplemental Agreement.

I would like to know how vacation bidding works? We have a few senior members that pick single days of vacation in July and August. The problem is, we're only allowed 5 members out of 50 to take vacation each week. The senior members with 6 weeks vacation take every Monday and Friday off for vacation during the month of July and August, leaving the weeks dead for the junior members while the senior members enjoy four week vacations for the two summer months.

I've been with my Local for 23 years, so I'm not a junior member, I just want to be fair to all on the job.

We all put our vacation bids in and they are approved in seniority order by April 1st of each year.

Thanks for the help, if you need anymore information, I'll answer ASAP.
