    Has anybody heard how UPS and rest of the corporate America handling it since it falls on Saturday. Do we just get the weekend off??

    Yup, we will just get the weekend off, but we will get paid for it so its a few extra hours on that week's paycheck that can be spent on a few more fireworks this year.

    Not sure if this is true but i was told we will only get sat. and sun. off but will be paid out for the 4th so it will show an extra day on your check I hope this is true

    I will go out on a limb here, but my guess is it will include fireworks, hotdogs, & beer. Not necessarily in that order.

    rumour has it that our building will be shutting down Friday, July 3rd. Much like this past January 2nd.

    Though the holiday falls on a Saturday, you will be allowed to have Saturday off, due to the 4th of July. Your paychecks will not be affected.

    when a holiday falls on saturday you get no extra day off but you do get holiday pay for the saturday.when it falls on sunday we get monday off.
  10. July 4th is on Saturday. Does that mean we'll get time and a half for the holiday,being that it would be a 6th punch?

    All holidays are paid 8 hours for FT.
    IF the majority of America" business are closed on the 3rd, we might shut down but I wouldn't make any plans for that day. An d IF by chance we did shut down for the thrid, it would be without pay.

    I've been told to expect to work on the 4th for Saturday air. If we work, that's time and a half plus holiday pay right?
