Re: Donations to the “Sick Leave Bank” for 2019-20
Date: May 2, 2019
Form MUST be SUBMITTED by June 18, 2019
The Stamford Education Association has established a “Sick Leave Bank” to aid unit members who may suffer prolonged absence from a disabling condition, an accident which causes disability, or a disability arising from complications from pregnancy. When personal sick leave accumulation has been exhausted, all unit members have the right to apply to the sick leave bank for assistance.
In accordance with contract Article 8, each unit member may contribute one (1) or two (2) days from his/her sick leave accumulation to the SEA Sick Leave Bank. Non tenured teachers may also donate to the Sick Leave Bank as per teacher contract. For each year they donate to the sick bank until they attain tenure, they are eligible to use 15 days from the bank. The SEA strongly recommends that all members donate at least one day to the Sick Leave Bank to ensure their eligibility for usage of days from the bank.
If you wish to donate to the bank, please complete the form below and return it to SEA Sick Bank c/o SEA Office by June 18, 2019 (via interschool mail or by scanning to firstname.lastname@example.org).
