What You Need to Know
You’re eligible for vacation benefits if you’re covered by a collective bargaining agreement with Locals 333, 953, or 1429, and work at least 675 hours in covered employment during the contract year.
Vacation benefits are paid quarterly at 100% of your straight-time rate of pay. The amount of vacation benefit hours you have depends on:
- The number of hours you work during the prior contract year (October 1–September 30); and
- Your number of qualifying years (contract years in which you worked at least 675 hours in covered employment).
You’re eligible for vacation benefit hours according to the following schedule:
|Hours of Service During Contract Year||Required Qualifying Years||Vacation Benefit Hours|
|1,300 or more||2 of the past 3 contract years||120|
|1,300 or more||5 of the past 6 contract years||160|
|1,500 or more||10 of the past 12 contract years||240|
You’re eligible for holiday benefits if you worked at least 800 hours in covered employment during the contract year. Holiday benefits represent 100% of your straight-time hourly rate, multiplied by eight hours, multiplied by the number of holidays agreed upon in your collective bargaining agreement.
