Your Sick Days are Worth Money!

Your sick days are worth money!!! How much depends on how many you have. Section 5.9 of our contract talks about "unused accumulated sick leave." According to this section of the contract it identifies teachers as those who started on or before September 2, 1988 and those who started after. In section 5.9.1 it states that all unused time shall be "cumulative" up to a total 250 days, for those teachers hired prior to September 2, 1988. In section 5.10 in talks about "unused accumulated sick leave for teachers whose employment began after September 2, 1988." For these teachers unused leave shall be "cumulative" up to 300 days. Section 5.10.3 speaks to how payment shall be made to teachers whose employment began "9/2/88 and thereafter", while section 5.9.3 speaks to how payment shall be made to teachers whose employment began on or before 9/2/88. For teachers hired on or before 9/2/88 section 5.9.4 states that payment shall be calculated on the basis of "1 day's pay for each 2 days of the first 150 days of accumulated leave and one day for each 4 days of the next 100 days of such accumulated leave." This is different for members hired after 9/2/88. Section 5.10.4 states "Payment shall be calculated on the basis of 1 day's pay for each 4 days of the first 200 days of accumulated leave and one day for each 2 days of the next 100 days of such accumulated leave." What does this look like for the teacher who is retiring, here are two examples.


How does your payment for unused accumulated sick leave entitlement work?
