When you provide your manager with your avail­able” dates to work on your next schedule, if you are not needed on any of those dates, you do not need to provide any additional dates. You have fulfilled your contrac­tual oblig­a­tion when you give your initial avail­ability. If you want to volun­teer for other dates to work, that is your option, but it is not manda­tory. The actual contract language is below:
