Questions on Who Works Day After Thanksgiving

Q. Who works the day after thanksgiving?

A. The Company has to provide a list of the members required to work when the vacation book is first routed. No Later.  The 30% is continuously rotated year after year.

Q. What if I am on vacation or I am not regularly scheduled that day?

A. A member who is on vacation can not be asked to work that day.  Since the Day after Thanksgiving is a normal work Day.  Anyone whose tour has Friday off can not be asked.

Article 9.1.1.1 states that a minimum of 70% will be assigned off the Day after Thanksgiving.
