    First Post, only been with the company for 6 months as a loader. I know this is a trivial question but Does UPS count Labor Day as a holiday? I have plans labor day weekend and i wont be back until mid-day Monday. Just wanting to make sure that i can take this trip.

    Yes, boxline, as a proud supporter of organized labor, UPS closes all operations on Labor Day. It is a paid holiday. Enjoy the day and enjoy the benefits that organized labor has provided workers in America.

    As a proud Canadian, Labour Day is a days off work here, too.
    It's federal all across the country.
    Double or tripple pay, if you do need to work (some jobs just never shut down, like Police, EMS, hotels, most retailers, etc).

    Well almost :happy2:. As a 6 month part-time employee he will get the day off, but new hires under the contract don't get holiday pay for the first year!

    Are you sure about that ?

    Here's is a federal labour law, after 30days (not working days), your entiteld to paid holidays, no matter where you work.

    Canada is really still part of the British Empire ... ask klein to say schedule.

    The only good thing that I can think of that came from Canada was Bob and Tom Mckenzie. Oh yeah, Moosehead, that was pretty good.:happy-very:

    Do yourself a favor--take your significant other for a mini-vacation to Montreal or to Ottawa. Montreal has some of the best dining, culture and nightlife. Ottawa is simply a beautiful city. Make sure you have either a passport or enhanced driver's license or you will be delayed at Douanes (Customs).

    Darn, I finally got it. Yes, it's spelled Labour Day. And the colour red.

    Thats from the original english (UK English). Which we use here most times.
    And across the world. (except in USA).

    No, big deal, we like to be distinct in our own ways.
    It's also a litre of gas here.

    Correct and incorrect.

    In this case, yes the employee does get a day off, but it is not a paid holiday, as the new contract states that all employees hired after August 1st do not recieve paid days off including holidays until 1 year employment.

    Yet another gem from UPS, the Teamsters, and the members who voted "Yes" . . .
