Vacation for Full-Time
Article 11 in the full-time collective agreement covers vacation.
How many vacation days am I entitled to?
Article 11.1 lists the number of vacation days you are entitled to based on completed years of continuous service in the full-time bargaining unit.
If you have questions about your years of continuous service, check with your department’s Compensation and Benefits Consultant.
When does the vacation year start and end?
The vacation year is July 1 to June 30. Full-time support staff are given their accrued vacation days on July 1.
How do full-time support staff accrue vacation days?
Vacation days are accrued (earned) based on the months you were actively employed in the year leading up to July 1.
What if I have less than 12 months of active employment before July 1?
You will earn a pro-rated number of vacation days based on the months you worked up to July 1.
Example: You became a full-time employee at the beginning of January, which is halfway through the vacation year. On July 1, you will receive half of the vacation day entitlement.
Assuming that you’re actively employed for the full year, on the following July 1, you will receive the full entitlement.
