Employees with 18 or more months or continuous employment with Safeway accrue one or more personal days annually on the anniversary of their date of hire. The number of personal days accrued varies by area and employees should refer to the Union contract for their particular Safeway store to confirm the number of days that may be accrued. Personal days must be used during the employee’s anniversary year and do not accrue year-to-year, so be sure to use them before your anniversary date each year. Also members can not carry more than two times their annual vacation accrual. Employees with two or more times their annual accrual should schedule and take vacation leave before the anniversary of their date of hire with the Company. Please be aware that there are black-out dates from November 15-December 31st unless mutually agreed between the Employer and Employee. You may call Safeway Employee Service Center (ESC) at 1-888-255-2269 to check your balances on both personal and vacation days accrued. If you try to schedule vacation and it is, for any reason, denied, please notify you Shop Steward or Union Representative assigned to your store.
