Things to keep in mind

  • The first choice should be the most important and not necessarily the first date of the year
  • Each vacation choice will be approved based on seniority
  • Anyone who does not submit a choice by the deadline will not be able to use their seniority to obtain the preference at a later date
  • Once requests are approved, changes will be made only under extenuating circumstances considering operational needs
  • The vacation entitlement for employees is an estimate based on the hours worked July to December. Actual entitlement will be calculated in early July the following year.
