Veterans Day Holiday Schedule
Oct. 15, 2023
Sisters and Brothers,
The upcoming Veterans Day holiday falls on Saturday Nov. 11, 2023. Several Mail Handlers have questions concerning the holiday scheduling. Below is a cut and paste from the Contract Interpretation Manual concerning holidays that fall on a Saturday.
If the holiday falls on Saturday and the employees’ non-workdays are Saturday and Sunday, the employees’ designated holiday would be Friday. If the employees’ non-workdays are Saturday and Friday, the employees’ designated holiday would be Thursday. If the employees’ non-workdays are Sunday and Monday, the employees’ holiday would be Saturday since Saturday is a workday.
If you still have any questions or concerns about your designated holiday for the upcoming Veterans Day holiday, please see a steward on your tour. Also, please do not forget to submit a PS Form 3971 if you choose to select annual leave exchange for your holiday instead of the holiday leave pay. The PS Form 3971 must be completed and submitted before the end of your Tour on your designated holiday. Make sure you keep a copy of the signed PS Form 3971 for your records.
