these dates purely as a service to members. SAFCEC itself
does not determine these dates. As such, no person should
use these dates as contractual dates for purposes of
tendering, or determining entitlement in terms of any
contractual claims. Each and every contract should spell out
"Non-Working Days" in the "Contract Data" and those days
should be used in connection with contractual issues.
In determining number of leave days and leave pay to be paid over
the "break", members should refer to the
Sectoral Determination for details.
