Pay Day During the Holiday Season

The Principal Agreement (and a recent Labour Board decision) requires that when a holiday falls on a pay day that pay day must be moved ahead one day. Normally the cheque and/or direct deposit pay day is Thursday.

Since Christmas and New Year’s both fall on a Thursday, the cheque/direct deposit pay days for this holiday season are Wednesday December 24 and Wednesday December 31. Please alert your payroll office of this requirement and avoid possible grievances for non-compliance.

Any questions or concerns regarding this matter may be addressed to the ECAO office. Contact Eryl Roberts at 416.675.3226 x311 or eroberts@ecao.org.
