Holiday reassurance

IN an effort to reassure M. Watson (Herald letters, January 6, 2011), it is highly unlikely the council staff will have been given extra days’ holiday at the tax payers’ expense.

Companies that shut down over the Christmas and new year period usually require those days to be taken out of the individual yearly holiday allocation.

I have to give up three days of my holiday allowance each year for the festive season and, as it’s always been that way, I don’t miss it, but I assure you it is quite normal.
