The RDO calendars for 2020 can be downloaded below.
36 Hour Week

Both the Plumbing and Fire Sprinklers Award 2010 (PFS Award) and the Union Agreement have substitute day provisions. This means that when certain days fall on either a Saturday or a Sunday they would be substituted to the Monday and / or the Tuesday. In 2020, Boxing Day (26 December) falls on a Saturday.
However, in this particular instance, the Victorian State Government have declared Monday 28 December 2020, as an additional public holiday. This means that Friday 25 December 2020, Saturday 26 December 2020 and Monday 28 December 2020 are all public holidays.
This impacts upon all employees; irrespective of whether they work a 36 Hour Week or a 38 Hour Week.
