    Holidays off....That's funny.

    We are required to get christmas or new years off, based on seniority. If your holiday off does not fall on one of your regularly scheduled days off, then you get signed for an extra shift to make up for the day off.

    Holidays off are like the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and magical chocolates that if eaten between the hours of 1am and 5am have 0 calories.

    At our hospital, full and part-timers have to work every other holiday. This year I'm working July 4 and Thanksgiving. Next year, I'll have to work New Years Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Christmas. Those who work casual or pool have to pick one winter and one summer holiday. Since I work evening shift, Christmas and New Years Eve will often fall on an evening I'm already scheduled, but I think management will work with us if we're scheduled for the eve AND the holiday to at least try to get the eve off.

    We have to work 3 holidays a year alternating Thanksgiving and Christmas. Weekenders do not unless it is their weekend, makes sense, they were hired for weekends only. Per diem is starting and they will have to work a holiday (will have to see how long it takes to get nurses into the program with shortage and how many regular staff we lose into the program). We will be offered a bonus if we work a 4th holiday and higher call pay for holidays.
