In our place we find out the Saturday before when Rota goes up, no matter how far in advance you may have requested a holiday. It’s an unbelievable company when it comes to holidays and impossible to plan anything.
In most cases holiday requests for single days and upwards are rejected anyway meaning we are forced to carry leave over year after year.

What the hell is going on in Some offices? Three weeks? All of your leave should be allocated and a leave card given to you before November.
Get your area rep onto it. Don't bother with your unit rep if you have one because he's not doing his job.

Why say three weeks is allocated if all your leave is allocated for 2019-20?

If you want to guarantee a day off you need to book the whole week as part of your leave otherwise you can request the day as your rest day or a random day off but that’s not guaranteed and can be changed if someone goes sick. But sounds like you’ve still got a week to pick if you’ve only picked 3 plus you can always buy extra weeks if you get in before the end of February.
