Faculty rights tip of the week: personal holiday

This is a new feature for the CFA Headlines. CFA will regularly run a brief “faculty rights tip” or short information piece about the faculty contract.


Did you know that every faculty employee is entitled to one Personal Holiday each year?

33.3 A faculty unit employee shall be entitled to a Personal Holiday, which may be taken on one (1) day during the calendar year. If the faculty unit employee fails to take the Personal Holiday before the end of the calendar year, the holiday shall be forfeited. CSU and CFA shall endeavor to inform a new faculty unit employee of his/her Personal Holiday. Scheduling of the Personal Holiday shall be by mutual agreement of the faculty unit employee and the appropriate administrator.
