Public Employees Federation, AFL-CIO
Dear Mr. Brynien:
This will confirm the understanding reached during negotiations of the 2007-2011 State/PEF Agreement regarding the availability of Leave for Professional Meetings for non-day shift employees pursuant to Article 12.15 of the Agreement.
Non-day shift employees often wish to use professional leave to attend professional meetings or programs necessary for licensure that are held during what would otherwise be non-work hours. Accordingly, agencies shall make every effort to accommodate requests from these employees to adjust their regular work schedule to allow them to use professional leave.
