When no work is performed on the above enumerated eight holidays or days celebrated as such, holiday pay shall be based on the average straight time hours worked the previous Monday through Saturday, with a maximum of eight (8) hours per day but in no case less than seven (7) hours. The Employer shall have the privilege of working any or all employees on such holidays if necessary in which event payment shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 11. of this Agreement. If any of said holidays falls on an employee's regular day off, the Employer has the option of granting Friday or Monday off providing the option is posted one week prior to said holiday. It is further understood that granting of pay for holidays is limited to employees who have been on the payroll of the Employer for thirty (30) calendar days or more prior to said holidays and provided the employee is on the job for their regular work shift immediately prior to and following said holidays except as herein otherwise provided. Absence from said shifts by mutual agreement shall not disqualify the employee from receiving holiday pay.
An employee with seniority who is on temporary layoff shall be paid for the holiday to the same extent as if they had worked and qualified in accordance with the above under this section, provided they have worked during the work week of the holiday, or in the work week prior to or in the work week following said holiday.
Employees with seniority absent due to illness or accident and therefore, not qualified under the above shall nevertheless receive holiday pay if the particular holiday occurs during the first forty-five (45) calendar days of said absence; provided, however, that employees absent due to sickness or accident, whose absence is limited to the scheduled day before or after the holiday (or both) will not be entitled to holiday pay.
