2024 Holiday Schedule

As we prepare for the new year, a question often asked is which holidays are recognized in our agreements. Each agreement specifies holidays recognized and what compensation is required if work is performed.
For your reference, we have summarized a list of holidays recognized under each agreement covered by the Northern California Chapter, NECA. In instances where it is necessary that employees covered under the agreement must work, employees are paid at double the straight time rate of pay. Some agreements preclude any work on Labor Day, except under emergency circumstances and only with the Business Manager’s approval.
Another area that should be reviewed is Carpenter’s Off-Days, which means that if electricians work on a project with other crafts that receive premium pay for the Carpenter’s Off-Day, then the electrician(s) shall also receive premium pay. However, is work is performed on a project where no other trade(s) receive premium pay, then electricians likewise shall not.
