Vacation

A. Covered Employees assigned to a 40-hour workweek schedule shall accrue vacation leave as follows:

  • From the date of hire through the end of the 5th year of service (60 months):

           3.08 hours biweekly (80 hrs/yr)

  • 5 through the end of the 10th year of service (120 months):

           4.61 hours biweekly (120 hrs/yr)

  • 10 through the end of the 15th year of service (180 months):

           6.15 hours biweekly (160 hrs/yr)

  • 15 years and one day or more (180 months plus one day):

           7.69 hours biweekly (200 hrs/yr)

B. Covered employees assigned to a 56-hour average workweek schedule shall accrue vacation leave as follows:

  • From the date of hire through the end of the 5th year of service (60 months):

           4.31 hours biweekly (112 hrs/yr)

  • 5 through the end of the 10th year of service (120 months):

           6.46 hours biweekly (168 hrs/yr)

  • 15 years and one day or more (180 months plus one day):

           10.77 hours biweekly (280 hrs/yr)

C. As of the end of the first full pay period in June of each year, an employee shall have an accrual balance of no more than the number of vacation hours he/she is entitled to earn in two years of employment. If an employee’s accrued vacation balance exceeds such accrual limitation, the employee shall be paid cash for the number of excess unused vacation hours on the last paycheck in June of each year. An exception to the number of hours carried over may be made at the discretion of the General Manager.

D. Vacation leave will be scheduled on a semi-annual basis during the months of December and June at a time to be designated by Management. Based on their seniority, employees will select vacation leave in two consecutive rotation blocks. Employees with the greatest seniority will select the first consecutive rotation blocks until each employee has had an opportunity to select as many blocks of vacation leave as is equal to the total number of his or her accrued vacation leave.
Employees shall not checker their rotation blocks across the calendar, but will have one opportunity, per selection round, to select up to two consecutive rotation blocks for a single period of leave. Employees who do not select two consecutive rotation blocks during the first selection round and who still have remaining vacation leave accrued will be allowed to select additional blocks of time, up to two consecutive rotation blocks per selection round based on seniority. Members who do not wish to take vacation may waive their turn without forfeiting any vacation leave they may have accrued up to that time.
