The DAT (Day At a Time) concept is new to us, some things to remember about DAT – DAT must be used in full day increments (Fleet), DAT is approved before Comp Days, DAT can be used to cover a CSO so that you get paid and the day does not count towards the Trades total (64 every 6 months)request for DAT must be made at time of Trade.
The amount of DAT that you may request varies based on your vacation accrual – everyone must use at least 2 weeks of dedicated vacation time (Fleet) for regular bidded VC, beyond that the vacation bank may be designated as DAT – at the employee option. You may bid all vacation as vacation and take no DAT if you prefer. DAT days do not roll over to the next year if not taken, however you will be paid out at the end of January the following year for any unused DAT time.
Fleet JCBA – Article 23
K. Employees will be required to bid a minimum of two (2) weeks’ vacation annually. Vacation days in excess of ten (10) can be taken as DAT days as provided below. Prior to bidding vacation for the following year, employees will be required to designate the number of vacation weeks they will bid and the number of DAT days they will set aside. DAT days can be used in full day increments only.
To sign up for your DAT days; log into Jetnet, go to Workbrain (wb.etm.aa.com), click Vacation Bid Election – this page will show how many hours you have for 2021 Vacation; there is a drop down menu at the bottom of the page where you designate VC weeks - balance will be DAT.
