Additional days off at holiday seasons are decided upon by the administration on a year-to-year basis.

These days and the conditions under which they are given are announced as each season approaches.

It is understood that the declaration of additional holidays on these occasions by the administration does not establish a binding policy or practice for future holidays.  

Part time and temporary employees are not paid for the holidays.

A terminated employee shall not be paid for any holidays occurring after the last day actually worked.
