Articles 22.10 (CUPE Local 951) and 22.11 (CUPE Local 917) provide that, “All regular employees will be granted 3
days leave of absence with pay in addition to all other vacation entitlements, to be taken between Boxing Day and
New Year’s Day. Where, due to operational requirements, an employee is required to work between Boxing Day and
New Year’s Day, these days will be added to the employees’ annual vacation entitlement.”

Please review the Working During the Holiday Closure guidelines which were developed jointly with the two CUPE Locals, and which provide additional information on how the leaves of absence with pay are to be administered.
