Union Policy – Three (3) Mandatory Vacation Days
- UTS is closed between Christmas Eve (December 24, 2020) and the first workday in 2021 (January 4, 2021). Employees must use three (3) of their accrued vacation days during the Christmas break which for 2020, the days are December 29th, 30th, and 31st. Since vacation days accrue on a fiscal basis (July 1 - June 30), three vacation days accruing between July 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, must be allotted toward Christmas vacation, with the remaining accrued vacation days being used throughout the rest of the fiscal year. For employees hired after November 1st who will not have sufficient vacation accrual to cover the three mandatory vacation days, your 2020 vacation will be charged for any shortfall.
