ANNUAL LEAVE ENTITLEMENTS

Shortly, the Annual Leave Selection will begin for Employees in Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3. The entitlements for the employees for next year's Annual Leave Selection (April/1/2008 to March/31/2009) is outlined below.

The NEW SENIORITY DATES will be used for the 2008/2009 Annual Leave Selection.

The entitlement (the number of weeks of leave) is based on your CONTINUOUS SERVICE DATE (C.S.D.). The order that employees select their annual leave is based on their SENIORITY DATE.  There is a hand full of employees who had employment in other Bargaining Units, and their C.S.D. is still different than their SENIORITY DATE. Employees who are tied will be ranked by their “Random Number”.

The chart below indicates the entitlement by Continuous Service Date for the purpose of the Annual Leave Draws.

REGULAR EMPLOYEES: 2008/2009 ENTITLEMENTS
3/31/2009 YR END
C.S.D. YRS WKS
Prior to 4/1/1981 28 7
Prior to 4/1/1988 21 6
Prior to 4/1/1995 14 5
Prior to 4/1/2002 7 4
After to 3/31/2002 < 7 3

TEMPORARY EMPLOYEES: 2008/2009 ENTITLEMENTS
3/31/2009 YR END
C.S.D. YRS WKS
ALL (6% in Percentage pay, equals 3 WKS)
     

For example, if your first date of employment was prior to April 1, 1981 you are entitled to 7 weeks annual leave.  Temporary Employees newly promoted into part time positions should ensure you get the annual leave you are entitled too. For example, if your first date of employment was prior to April 1, 2002 you are entitled to 4 weeks annual leave.
