Good question---I would think that you would get paid but am unsure whether you would get 4 or 8 hours per day.

There is no doubt that he will be working---the question was would he get paid for the holidays. He came from the inside and has not made book yet---does he get paid for 4 or 8 hours per day?

YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT!!!!!!!!! You get paid for both Thanksgiving and the day after as holiday pay. You then get paid straight time for all hours worked on the day after. Zagsfan is a new casual who has yet to get his seniority---does he get 4 or 8 hours holiday pay for each of the two holidays next week?

YOU ARE ALSO MISSING THE POINT!!!! I don't care about the payrate on the day after Thanksgiving (it is straight time where I work). The OP's question is since he has yet to make book does he get paid for the holidays and, if so, does he get his drivers rate (8 hours) or the inside rate (4 hours).

If you are a full-time , non-seasonal/temp driver and have a new seniority date (post-dated to your 1st in 30 days), you will get 8 hours pay each day. At least for this region.

If he's a temp, he gets paid holidays as 4 hours, because his technical classification is that of whatever his inside position is. It would be the same when he would call out, he would be paid for 4 hours, not 8.

Here in our supplement it says,"Employees who are serving their probationary period are NOT entitled to holiday pay for holidays falling within the probationary period" Article 60 section 3 Southern Region.

Is that in addition to the holiday pay or is it 8 hours for the holiday and straight time for hours worked?

At my center the double time for hours worked is in addition to the 8 hours of pay we get for the holiday. I am number 5 on the seniority list in our center and I work it every year. A very easy 500 bucks.
