Local 15 Metro & Local 34– July 4th…or the day observed as such. (July 3, 2020)
For the metro plumbers if both dates are worked then one of them is recognized as the holiday and the other is dependent on how many hours you have already worked in the week.
Local 455 & Local 539 Metro & St. Cloud – July 4th…or the day recognized by the Federal Government. (July 3, 2020)
