    Yes, if the holiday is on a Sunday we get Monday off. Or at least we are supposed to.

    Not in the 177. Black Friday optional. 8 hours holiday pay or work and get holiday pay plus double time for all hours worked:DI'll probably just take the holiday pay. Love that 4 day weekend before the chaos begins

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I doubt it. Most likely we will be able to pick a floating holiday those weeks based on senority.
