The General Conference of the International Labour Organisation,

Having been convened at Geneva by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office, and having met in its Thirty-fifth Session on 4 June 1952, and
Having decided upon the adoption of certain proposals with regard to holidays with pay in agriculture, which is the fourth item on the agenda of the session, and
Having determined that these proposals shall take the form of an international Convention,
adopts this twenty-sixth day of June of the year one thousand nine hundred and fifty-two the following Convention, which may be cited as the Holidays with Pay (Agriculture) Convention, 1952:

Article 1

Workers employed in agricultural undertakings and related occupations shall be granted an annual holiday with pay after a period of continuous service with the same employer.

Article 2

1. Each Member which ratifies this Convention shall be free to decide the manner in which provision shall be made for holidays with pay in agriculture.
2. Such provision may be made, where appropriate, by means of collective agreement or by entrusting the regulation of holidays with pay in agriculture to special bodies.
3. Wherever the manner in which provision is made for holidays with pay in agriculture permits--
(a) there shall be full preliminary consultation with the most representative organisations of employers and workers concerned, where such exist, and with any other persons, specially qualified by their trade or functions, whom the competent authority deems it useful to consult;
(b) the employers and workers concerned shall participate in the regulation of holidays with pay, or be consulted or have the right to be heard, in such manner and to such extent as may be determined by national laws or regulations, but in any case on a basis of complete equality.

Article 3

The required minimum period of continuous service and the minimum duration of the annual holiday with pay shall be determined by national laws or regulations, collective agreement, or arbitration award, or by special bodies entrusted with the regulation of holidays with pay in agriculture, or in any other manner approved by the competent authority.

Article 4

1. Each Member which ratifies this Convention shall be free to determine, after consultation with the most representative organisations of employers and workers concerned, where such exist, to which undertakings, occupations, and categories of persons referred to in Article 1 the provisions of the Convention shall apply.
2. Each Member which ratifies this Convention may exclude from the application of all or any of the provisions of the Convention categories of persons whose conditions of employment render such provisions inapplicable to them, such as members of the farmer's family employed by him.

Article 5

Where appropriate, provision shall be made, in accordance with the established procedure for the regulation of holidays with pay in agriculture, for--
(a) more favourable treatment for young workers, including apprentices, in cases in which the annual holiday with pay granted to adult workers is not considered adequate for young workers;
(b) an increase in the duration of the annual paid holiday with the length of service;
(c) proportionate holidays or payment in lieu thereof, in cases where the period of continuous service of a worker is not of sufficient duration to qualify him for an annual holiday with pay but exceeds such minimum period as may be determined in accordance with the established procedure;
(d) the exclusion from the annual holiday with pay of public and customary holidays and weekly rest periods, and, to such extent as may be determined in accordance with the established procedure, temporary interruptions of attendance at work due to such causes as sickness or accident.

Article 6

The annual holiday with pay may be divided within such limits as may be laid down by national laws or regulations, collective agreement, or arbitration award, or by special bodies entrusted with the regulation of holidays with pay in agriculture, or in any other manner approved by the competent authority.

Article 7

1. Every person taking a holiday in virtue of this Convention shall receive, in respect of the full period of the holiday, not less than his usual remuneration, or such remuneration as may be prescribed in accordance with paragraphs 2 and 3 of this Article.
2. The remuneration payable in respect of the holiday shall be calculated as prescribed by national laws or regulations, collective agreement, or arbitration award, or by special bodies entrusted with the regulation of holidays with pay in agriculture, or in any other manner approved by the competent authority.
3. Where the remuneration of the person taking a holiday includes payments in kind, provision may be made for the payment in respect of holidays of the cash equivalent of such payments in kind.

Article 8

Any agreement to relinquish the right to an annual holiday with pay, or to forgo such a holiday, shall be void.
