Article 11: Holidays

Collective Bargaining Agreement for Maintenance and Operations


Full-time bargaining unit employees, except Food Services, shall be eligible for eleven (11) paid holidays each year.


The specific days shall be designated by the College and shall normally include Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Day after Thanksgiving.


In order to receive pay for an observed holiday, an employee must either be at work, or on an approved absence with pay, both the work day before and the work day after the observed holiday.


Employees required to work on their observed holiday shall receive two and one half (2 ) times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked on the holiday.


A holiday which falls within an employee's approved annual leave (vacation) or approved sick leave shall not be deducted from the employee's annual or sick leave accrual.


When a holiday falls on an employee's regular day off, the employee will be given an alternative day off to be scheduled at the mutual agreement of the employee and their supervisor in accordance with CNM policy and procedure.


Holidays shall be considered time worked for the purpose of computing overtime.
