Re: Holiday Schedule 2014-15 and 2015-16

Please distribute to all faculty and staff.

In planning the University’s holiday schedule, we make every effort to provide a two-week closure in December, knowing how all of us appreciate the opportunity to have a break and the efforts to match the closure schedule set out by the school boards of the Greater Toronto Area.

Following consultation with the registrars’ offices, we are delighted to report that there will be a two-week closure over the December break for 2014-15.

It should be noted that summer hours begin on July 1 and end at Labour Day annually.

This announcement is not intended to establish service or operating schedules in such divisions as the Central Library, ITS, or University Operations, where announcements will be made separately. In other areas, certain staff may be required to maintain essential services or to provide service to the public. Staff required to work during holiday periods should be granted compensating time off at a later date. Employees covered by collective agreements are subject to the provisions contained in their collective agreements.

Supervisors and administrators are requested to schedule holiday staffing arrangements, where required, as far in advance as possible, and are encouraged to consult with their HR Divisional Office.

Any questions about the alternative arrangements that should be made for non-unionized administrative staff who are required to work on a scheduled holiday should be directed to your HR Divisional Office. Questions regarding the application of the collective agreements for unionized staff should be directed to Human Resources at 416.978.6503.

We would be grateful if you would bring this schedule to the attention of all faculty and staff.
