Abstract

Originally, hourly employees were paid only for time actually workers, reducing their paychecks when management shut down operations during holidays. Tody paid holidays are a significant part of the compensation package and are generally assured under collective bargaining contracts. Disputes over the interpretation of holiday pay provisions comprise a significant portion of the arbitrator's caseload. This Article examines a series of recurring holiday pay issues and the body of arbitration opinions which treat them, and sets out decisional principles to guide in their resolution. The Article also suggests ways for the parties to avoid holiday pay controversies when negotiating collective agreements.
