Notify your supervisor on or before Dec 1st

If you don’t, it may mean less vacation time in 2018 and 2019.

 

With the 2018 – 2019 vacation bid fast approaching, I’d like to remind everyone of a small, but important, paragraph in our CBA (collective bargaining agreement) – paragraph 777:

777 b.) Amount Available for Use.

 

In submitting their requests, Employees may use all their annual accrued vacation or anticipated vacation accrual. Employees who anticipate that they will want to utilize more than their annual accrual will notify their supervisor on or about December 1st.

 

2012 – 2019 SEIU-UHW / Kaiser Collective Bargaining Agreement

Your “anticipated vacation accrual” is the amount of vacation you will accrue during the 12-month period between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019. Your “annual accrued vacation” is the vacation you will have accrued on or before the January 31 deadline to submit your requests.

In short, you’re entitled to bid for as many vacation hours/days as you will have at each point between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019. If, however, you intend to use more vacation than you will accrue, you must notify your supervisor on or before December 1st.

Whatever your plans, you might as well notify your supervisor of your intent to use more vacation than you will accrue. Failing to do so could mean less vacation time in 2018 and 2019.
