Vacation deadline approaches for AP staffers

Our contract with the Associated Press says vacation time for 2012 must be scheduled by March 31 or you will lose your seniority preference.

You are urged to select the vacation time you have planned now.

 Employees have been told at least some old vacation must be used this year. If you have more than seven days of old vacation time, you must use at least seven of them. [fb-share]

The old vacation time doesn’t carry a seniority preference.
