Re:  Holiday Schedule 2012-2013 and 2013-14

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, UTCNS, or Facilities and Services, 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 their personnel officer in Human Resources offices at 215 Huron Street or in decentralized personnel offices for advice. 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 the personnel officer assigned to your area. 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 staff.
