Article 5: Holidays

ARTICLE 5

Holidays

Section 1. January 1, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day shall be recognized holidays, and all employees shall be given leave on those days without loss of pay.

Each employee shall be entitled to take two personal days of his or her choosing within each calendar year without loss of pay, provided the date chosen is approved by the Department Head.

Section 2. In all weeks wherein one of these holidays falls, the work week shall be four days or nights, not including the holiday. An employee may elect to work five shifts in a holiday week whenever work is available and take his or her holiday at a time agreeable to himself/herself and the Publisher. All work performed on holiday eves or holidays specified in Section 1 shall be paid for at time-and-one-half. Regularly scheduled full-time employees who work a holiday shift shall receive in addition to the time-and-one-half rate, an additional shift off with pay at a date mutually agreed upon by the employee and his/her supervisor. The eve of the holiday shall be the holiday for night workers.

Section 3. Whenever employees are on vacation during a week in which occurs one of the holidays specified in Section 1, such employees shall be given an extra day off immediately preceding or immediately following their vacation period, or may elect to take their holiday at a time agreeable to themselves and the Publisher.

When employees are on a day/night off when one of the holidays specified in Section 1 above occurs, such employees shall be given an extra day off during the same week or may elect to take such day off at a time agreeable to themselves and the Publisher.

Days off accrued under this Section and prior to Thanksgiving must be taken before the end of the calendar year unless the employee and the Publisher agree part or all of the time due may be carried over to the following year.
