Local Travel and Compensation

April 28, 2017

Attention members: If you are instructed to report to work somewhere other than your normal duty location (ie: your normal duty location is passenger processing at the airport and you are instructed to report to a private aircraft facility), please read the contract language below. We encourage you to submit a claim for reimbursement so long as the language below applies to you.

 

Article 16: Travel

Section 5. Local Travel

  • A. After an employee places himself where he normally reports, the cost to the employee of any local travel required for official purposes during regular hours of work or on overtime shall be reimbursed by the Agency. In this regard, once an employee arrives where he normally reports, he will receive full mileage reimbursement for any subsequent travel to any temporary duty station.

  • B. When an employee travels from his home to a temporary duty station and/or from a temporary duty station to his home, the employee will be reimbursed for any mileage in excess of his normal round trip from his home to where he normally reports.

  • C. No employee is entitled to reimbursements that are not permitted pursuant to the Federal Travel Regulations.

  • D. Examples of the rules set forth in Subsections A and B above include:

  1. When an employee travels from his residence to a temporary duty station and then returns home, the employee shall be reimbursed for actual mileage and expenses in excess of the normal round trip distance between his residence and where s/he normally reports.

  2. When an employee travels from his residence to where he normally reports, then travels from where he normally reports to a temporary duty station, then travels from the temporary duty station back to his home, the employee shall be reimbursed for the distance between the two (2) duty stations. If the distance between the employee's final temporary duty station and his home exceeds the distance between where he normally reports and his home, the employee shall be reimbursed for the excess expense.
