December Holidays for Classified Employees
The SEIU-OUS collective bargaining agreement grants both December 24 and 25 as paid holidays classified employees. The December 24th holiday will be observed on Monday, December 24th, 2012 and Christmas Day will be observed on Tuesday December 25th, 2012.
Classified employees will also receive January 1st, 2013 off in observance of New Year’s Day.
In addition to the holidays described above, full-time classified employees receive eight hours of leave, called the “special day of leave,” which is prorated for part-time staff. This day may be used on the day before or day after Christmas or New Year's Day holidays. The university will be open most of those days, and time off should be scheduled to maintain departmental services. SEIU and Teamsters’ employees receive this day under the terms of their collective bargaining agreements. Temporary employees do not receive this day of paid leave.
Holidays for Unclassified Employees
For unclassified employees, Christmas Day will be observed on Tuesday, December 25th, 2012 and New Year’s Day on Tuesday, January 1st, 2013. Governor Kitzhaber recently announced that he has granted the traditional special day of leave (Governor's Day) for unclassified employees (i.e., officers of administration, instruction and research), which may be used the workday before or after Christmas or New Year's Day. In addition, unclassified employees have December 25th, 2012 and January 1st, 2013 off as paid holidays.
