CBA Language Regarding Holidays

Article IV Section 24

The following days shall be recognized holidays: Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Whenever one of these holidays falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it shall be observed as follows: (e) On the preceding day, Friday, for employees for whom the Saturday upon which the holiday occurs is a regular day off; (f) On the following day, Monday, for employees for whom the Sunday upon which the holiday occurs is a regular day off; (g) On the Saturday or Sunday on which the holiday occurs for employees for whom such Saturday or Sunday is a basic workday; (h) On the preceding Thursday for employees for whom the Saturday upon which Christmas occurs is a regular day off; and (i) On the following Tuesday for employees for whom the Sunday upon which Christmas Eve occurs is a regular day off. The provisions of this Section shall apply on the day observed by each employee rather than on the actual holiday, and shall not affect the Company's right to reschedule an employee's basic workweek. When a holiday is observed on an employee's basic workday, the employee may be given the day off and shall be paid at their basic hourly rate of pay for their scheduled hours. However, when an employee works on a holiday which is observed on one of the employee's basic workdays, the employee shall be paid at their basic hourly rate of pay for the day and, in addition, shall be paid on the following basis for any hours which, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 of this Article, are allocated to the holiday: (j) Time and one-half for any hours worked during the employee's regular schedule for that basic workday. (k) Double time for any hours worked outside of the employee's regular schedule for that basic workday. When a holiday is observed on an employee's regular day off (Monday to Friday, inclusive), and the employee does not work, they shall be paid eight (8) hours of pay at the rate of time and one-half. However, if the employee works, they shall be paid, in addition, at the rate of time and one-half for the first eight (8) hours worked on their first regular day off, and double time rate for the first eight (8) hours worked on their second regular day off; double time will be paid thereafter for time worked on either regular day off which was allocated to the holiday.
