    Would calling off the day before and the day after Thanksgiving count as one or two "instances?"

    Richard Harrow Deplorable.

    Two, unless Black Friday is still a company holiday in your local.

    1) You probably won't get paid for Thanksgiving (depending on Local).
    2) If you are worried about "instances", then you probably have too many as it is.
    3) Because it's a Local issue, you are better off to call your union hall and ask your business agent. Every building is run differently.

    I'm not worried about instances. I never call off or miss days.

    One you book off on Wednesday and don't book back on till the following Monday. Also depending on your supplement you might or might not get paid for the holidays ( Thursday , Friday ). If your in New England area you would get paid if you worked either Monday ir Tuesday or any day the week before the holiday.

    How about taking vacation that time next year? I've done it for as long as I can remember. Much easier that way.

    It's one of the hardest weeks to get. I'm sure the OP isn't that far up the list.

    Could be the OP may not have reached the 1yr mark of employment, and no paid holidays until 1 yr of employment?

    I doubt the OP has the seniority needed to get that week off.
