    We get 1 1/2 time if you physically show up and work the holiday in addition to any other shift diffs you get but that only applies from mid-mid. If you are scheduled to work but are put on SB, you get 1 1/2 time the standby pay (which is around $15/hr or so). For those of us that don't work the holiday - we have 8 holidays built into our PTO (or so they say).

    Ok, there's holiday pay and there's holiday pay. The holiday pay for me is 25% differential. No extra PTO. It's only paid from 7pm on the eve until 7pm of the day. So if you work nights and draw the luck of working Christmas night you get no extra pay at all.

    No union around here.

    Where my husband used to work as a paramedic they paid double time and a half; employees fought over the holiday shifts.

    We get Paid time and a Hafe for Holidays, if you don't work you don't get paid But it is part of our PTO Package, I usully build up 275 hours a year. I take a week off every month. Can't complain... much any way.

    Actually a couple of years ago they increased Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day from $2.00/hr to time and a half.

    For bank holidays we get time and two thirds, for saturday time and a third, and for Sunday time and two thirds. ~For night shift we get time and a third unless it is at a weekend.

    I work in the NHS 4 days per week and end up with 8 weeks paid annual leave a year. This went up with Agenda for Change. I personally think it is too much, but I guess it compensates for having no breaks and working unpaid overtime. What do others think?

    Worked both Union and non union and have always received differntial equal to time and one half or double time (depending on holiday) for actual hours worked. This was also earned while on PTO systems. I have actually never heard of not receiving some form of compensation for working the holidays, at least for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
    Curious as to what part of the country you are in that doesn't give something for the holiday worked. Wondering if there is a geographic or regional aspect to not receiving extra pay on the holiday.

    We get straight time for holidays but are given another day off with pay to be scheduled at a later time. That is also given to people who dont work the holiday, so its not so bad. Double time.

    At the LTC where I work, nurses and CNAs only get holiday pay if they work on the actual holiday, which at the a time-and-a-half rate. We are also members of a union.

    If we work a holiday, we get the choice of taking it in pay(time and a half) or "comp time"(equally 12 hours). If we don't work the holiday, we only get 8 hrs' comp time. Yes, we have a union.

    My husband doesn't get holiday pay and has to work either Christmas day or Christmas eve. Had to work Thanksgiving, have to work new years, 4th of July, etc. No union.

    We plan on moving when I graduate NS, somewhere where the pay is better, the air is cooler and paid holidays would be a welcomed change!

    We get time and a 1/2, which is not enough to be away from our families IMHO. I get paid and extra $25 for working every other weekend. :angryfire Not much incentive to come in if you ask me! :trout:
