Section 1. ASEs shall not be required to work on the following holidays which occur during the term of their appointment, except as provided in Section 4 of this Article.

These holidays will be observed on the date designated by the University for the University community.

Section 2. ASEs employed 50% FTE for three or more quarters during the 12-month period starting September 16th shall be entitled to one personal holiday during that 12-month period.
