I used to say that, but......

I will go in the hole on VAC in March - 28 days of VAC in Feb and been out on Medical since Oct. and have used up DSA and will have used up RSA. I have a week of VAC in Nov. and if I want to use it (assuming I come back off Medical), I will have to do some MUV......

MUV is a pretty good deal as long as you know you are getting stuck w what you asked for, ie. once parameters YOU requested are met AND you seniority can hold it, trip is permanently yours. Also important, the override for block over 8 goes into MUV once trip is complete instead of on next mid months pay.

As mentioned before, there is no trip guarantee for MU sick, vacation, or disability. Not only are you stuck with this trip, but if the trip cancels (equipment change, for example), you get nothing.

I'm not sure why we ever allowed this in our contract. I never do MUV, MUS, or MUD for these reasons.
