    They can't tell you you can't have any holidays....but they can tell you that you can't take them the exact times you want them due to staffing issues. Its often the case that the more senior employees get first pick at vacation time and if you don't happen to be in that category you have to settle for vacation time that's not in the summer.

    It doesn't say that they refuse to give you your vacation time. It just states that they would like you to go when they are not so busy. I think it would be a smart business decision for you to schedule your vacation during the less busy time if possible.
