UUP Chapter President’s Note: Although Academic and Professional members of the UUP bargaining unit can receive Leave Donation, only Professionals and Librarians in the UUP bargaining unit as well as those in other participating unions can donate Leave Donation. This process transcends union lines. The only restriction in regard to UUP is that this agreement is limited to the Professionals as academic leave in UUP is calculated in a different manner.
Under an agreement between applicable public employee unions and the State of New York, a program has been established where vacation time can be donated across unions to those who have exhausted their sick leave. On the Oneonta campus, Corinne Steward, and Jackie Ruff, CSEA, have exhausted thier sick leave accruals.. Any member of the UUP bargaining unit who accrues vacation leave can donate vacation days to Corinne and Jackie so long as they maintain a balance of 10 vacation days after donated days are deducted from their balances. The identity of donors remains confidential.
To donate any accruals to Corinne Steward and Jackie Ruff, please print out and complete the form at the following link http://www.oneonta.edu/admin/humres/HR/HR_images/LEAVE_DONATION_FORM.pdf and send it to Human Resources Office, Netzer 208. For further information, please contact the Human Resources Office at 436-2509. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Corinne and Jackie express thanks and appreciation for your help. UUP also thanks you for considering this request.
