The current school year has seen an unprecedented need for sick leave bank requests. As a result, our hours were exhausted early in the year and we need your help to collect more hours for next year.
Do you have unused sick leave hours? Please consider donating before the end of the school year to help support PAT members facing serious health issues for next year. Members may donate up to 40 hours of sick leave annually.
Are you retiring or resigning this year? Employees who have already submitted their notice of resignation are exempted from this maximum limit, and may contribute as many hours as they would like.
The PAT Sick Leave Bank (see PAT/PPS contract Article 220.127.116.11) provides aid for colleagues who have exhausted their accumulated leave balances and are unable to work due to extended or recurring personal illness. With the help of the Sick Leave Bank, they are able to avoid the additional hardships of lost salary and lost insurance coverage during their illness.
