Default 30/168 and X-day(s)

I had a couple x-days placed at the 8th day -168hr mark on my June schedule. I cannot move them in iCrew as I receive a ďViolates Offday GroupingĒ message. I donít see a 3-99-5 issue on my request.

Do we have our X-days placed on our schedule based on the 168 rule, and if so, when did that begin?

PBS can award as many x days in a row as you bid for but once pref bid awards it we canít move X-days around that create a conflict unless a conflict already existed via the bid awards.

I feel like I have moved days around to create a unawarded stretch of 7 plus days on call in a row, but Iím not positive. You have to have at least 3 days of availability for every block of on call time. Are you sure that the days that you are moving created that?

I have over 3 days available. I tried to load most of my x-days at the end of the month because Iím moving. I have a couple odd x-days placed to what appears to solve the 30 hour off requirement. Iím unable to move them.

Are you creating another group of X days by moving them or trying to add them to an already existing group? After initial bids you can do the latter but cannot create a separate, additional group even if it’s within the number of X day groupings allowed.

This is where Iím going wrong. I guess Iíve always attached xday moves to existing xdays. This month is weird as I have two single xdays that are worthless as Iím trying to stack all my days at the end of the month.

Thanks Denny!

Thumbs up

I’m pretty sure you can reduce the number of X day blocks by adding to an existing group but you cannot increase the number of X day blocks. Once you do that, that’s how many blocks you have and you cannot go back to the greater number later if you change your mind.

Iím not increasing blocks...i just want to combine two single xdays together, but neither x-day remained as scheduled. Iíll dig into the SRH.

Iíll try marrying one up without moving the other to see if PCS permits.

As long as reserve coverage is good, you should be able to do that then try to move them together or try to move one at a time to your block at the end of the month. Good luck!
