For the new Emergency Sick Leave Bank, everyone should note that:
- On March 31st of each year of the agreement, all full-time members who have not contributed to the Emergency Sick Leave Bank (ESLB) shall have three of their accrued sick days assigned to the ESLB.
- Bargaining unit members with a sick leave balance of 105 hours or more on March 31st will have these three days deducted immediately.
- Bargaining unit members with less than 105 sick leave hours on March 31st, will have 1 day deducted quarterly.
- New hires will have one day deducted in each of the 9th, 10th, and 11th month accruals.
The donation of three days only occurs one time, but upon retirement, all members’ sick days in excess of 240 shall be assigned to the ESLB.
