Vacation year is the twelve-month period from April 1st to March 31st.
Vacation credits increase with your years of service with the employer, starting at 15 days in the first year and moving to 30 days in the 25th year of service.
You have access to your vacation credits as you earn them.
Access your vacation credits by submitting (an) annual vacation request(s). Seniority governs in the department for granting vacation. If you split your vacation into multiple blocks, you will have to indicate your first choice as that is where you will be able to use your seniority, only once. Indicate your second and third choices as well in case you are not most senior for the first selection.
Make sure that you get your vacation request in by March 15th to use your seniority. After that vacation is granted on a first-come basis. If you don’t submit your vacation request by March 15th, you can’t use your seniority.
Vacation schedules shall be posted and confirmed no later than April 1st, and you should have confirmation, in writing, of your requests within seven calendar days.
Enjoy your well-deserved vacation, you earned it!
