Any Fredonia employee *who accrues vacation days* may donate to the
Sick Leave Bank, including any vacation days over the 40 day maximum that
may otherwise be lost (as of January 1st each year for UUP and M/C, or April 1st for CSEA, PEF and NYSPBA). Donations to the Sick Leave Bank can be made at any time throughout the year.

The Leave Donation Form to the Sick Leave Bank is available from the Payroll Services website under the forms section, under Time and Attendance and Leaves at http://www.fredonia.edu/admin/payroll/ .

If you have any questions regarding donating to the Sick Leave Bank, please contact the Payroll Services Office at x3775, or UUP office x3595, or email Susan Cortes at Susan.Cortes@fredonia.edu, or UUP office uup@fredonia.edu.

New Lens on Faculty Salaries

Work at a regional public university? You’ll earn more at a unionized, large urban institution, according to new analysis of faculty salaries.
