Always 3 weeks starting on the First Saturday in December. That would be December 5- 25. That is for OT & no 2nd trip payments except for EMA if warranted.
Guarantee Period begins on October 10 this year. Remember that X-Days earned prior to Oct 10 cannot be used until after the Christmas OT Period has ended (Dec 26).
The Post Office has their own “Peak Season“ that starts in November but I don’t know the date. Mgmt is notorious for quoting Peak Season as a reason to deny leave but it’s not OUR peak season & NOT a valid reason for denial.

X-Days earned before October 10th, will they still be there after December 26th, even if they are earned in August? Or do you lose them?

Yes, X-days are still viable on December 26 if earned prior to October 10. From the Beginning of Guarantee to end of Christmas OT does not count in the “12-week” timeframe. The ”12-weeks” clock stops until the X-days can be used again. We never ”lose” X-days as they are either used as Leave or paid out. “Paid out” Is not automatic & many times the Carrier has to let mgmt know when the 12-weeks is passed.
