It`s important to note that these holidays may not be applicable to all workers in the construction industry. Some workers may have different entitlements or may work on holidays with additional pay or time off in lieu.

In addition to knowing when the working rule agreement holidays will take place, it`s also important to plan ahead for any projects or deadlines that may be affected by these holidays. Communicate with your team and clients to ensure everyone is on the same page and work can be adjusted as needed.
