I’m at a fully staffed facility and my ATM recently informed us that RVA is going to “enforce” policies pertaining to leave requests. Basically if somebody requests off, and another controller isn’t willing to change their RDO to cover a shift or the manager change his shift to cover, then leave can be denied. Previous to this if somebody requested off then the manager would offer overtime to whoever isnt working and the shift would be covered. Now they’re saying unless somebody calls out sick they cannot issue overtime to cover. I just wanna hear other’s thoughts on this. Is this only my facility? We are a NATCA facility, our rep talked to the regional guy and he basically said if our leave is denied because RVA doesnt want to offer overtime to somebody to cover, it wouldnt be a solid case for a grievance.
