STATEMENT OF CLAIM: Claim of the General Committee of The Order of Railroad Telegraphers on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad that:
1. Carrier failed and refused to compensate Mr. E. 0. Potter, Drawbridge Operator, his proper vacation allowance of three work weeks October 24 to November 13, 1961, inclusive.
2. Carrier shall be required to pay E. 0. Potter the difference between the amount allowed and the amount to which he was entitled.

Potter was the regularly assigned incumbent of a Drawbridge Operator's position at Boonville, Missouri, bulletined to work six days per week, at a monthly rate of $450.95. Effective October 24, 1961, Carrier abolished the position.
Claimant had been scheduled to start his vacation of three work weeks (for which he had duly qualified) beginning November 1, 1961. Because of the abolishment taking effect shortly prior to his vacation date, Claimant and his immediate supervisor, the Chief Dispatcher, agreed that Potter would advance his vacation to commence October 24, 1961. Accordingly, Claimant Potter did take his vacation of three work weeks.
The parties are signatory to the so-called National Vacation Agreement, effective January 1, 1942, which, by reference, is hereby made a part of this submission.
