Salesforce Timezone class won't provide you what you are looking for and rightfully so because short names are different depending upon the dates. They show CDT vs CST timezone (Daylight Time vs Standard Time). Also, America/Phoenix has two different timezones depending on which day you are referencing to. Static map of values wont work either.
