CountDC said:As I am sure everyone knows DCBA has pushed that a Class A Reserve can not be authorized PMV higher than the 500km limit unless they will earn enough leave while on TD and the hiring unit authorizes it. Reading this section of the CFTDTI I disagree. Seems straight forward enough to me, put on Class A day one and then no more pay until the start of the task/TD. For example mbrs TD is 1500kms and course starts 4 May ends 15 Jul. Class A 1 May (day one of travel) nothing 2 and 3 May, Class B pay starts 4 May. Course ends 15 Jul along with Class B pay, Class A 16 Jul and all done. When the mbr actually travels don't care as long as he is there to start 4 May.
I agree with you. Unfortunately there's a few people that have grown roots in DCBA that are utterly incompetent, and if you show them in black and white that the sky is blue, they will someone conclude that's actually yellow, and only a grievance can solve it.
CountDC said:Perhaps someone here can help with this one. I recall before where a factor in granting a member transportation expenses home for a break while on TD was allowed if it was determined that it was cost effective. Believe it had to do with showing that the transportation back and forth was comparable to expenses paid if mbr stayed at the TD location. This holiday block leave is a perfect example - pay mbrs tpt home vice meals and incidentals at TD location. Maybe just me having a bad day but can't find it anywhere.
I believe you are talking about CBI 209.31 - Reimbursement for Weekend Travel While on Temporary Duty. A slightly tangled benefit as well, and a rarely used one, that's worth a discussion.
