Section 1. Paid Holidays. Except in cases of emergency, all officers covered by this Agreement shall receive holidays annually as set by the County Board. The County Board will undertake a “buy back” of uncompensated holidays earned by employees of the Sheriff’s Office, at straight time. The maximum number of holidays each officer may hold in an uncompensated bank will be four (4). Scheduling of holiday time off will be in accordance with Article XXI, Section 5 of this Agreement. The Sheriff and his officers will make a good faith effort to accomplish scheduling and compliance with this provision and the approval of an officer’s request to implement this amendment will not be unreasonably withheld by the Sheriff.
Section 2. Personal Days. In addition to the above cited holidays, employees covered by this Agreement shall receive three (3) personal days per year.
