  1. During the first 5 years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 4.0 hours per biweekly pay period worked.
  2. After the completion of 5 years of continuous service, vacation will be accrued at the rate of 4.9 hours per biweekly pay period worked.

  7. No employee may carry an accumulation of more than 52 pay periods’ vacation accrual at any one time. However, employees may accrue unlimited vacation time in excess of the maximum when such vacation accrues due to remaining in a pay status during periods of illness or injury which precluded liquidating vacation credits earned in excess of the maximum allowed.
