Consider Helping Members in Need
Perhaps you did not know, NYS has a leave donation program that allows state workers to donate their vacation time to be used as sick time to assist
employees in need. These donations can be made across unions and can mean the world to a peer with a long-term medical issue.
Please consider donating extra leave time to members on long-term medical leave. By donating vacation days these members can remain on the payroll and continue to receive much-needed health insurance. The donations are directed specifically to individuals the days cannot be placed into a pool. Links to the necessary forms are below. Complete the form and email or fax to time and attendance.

Katrice Keenan – Joint Commission – Cont Readiness
Luisa Maldonado – Housekeeping
Adam Zazzera – EMT
Robert Jacobsen – Nuclear Medicine
Como Clercien – Dialysis

Every day donated is a tremendous help and comfort to those in need . Also, if you know of someone who might be in need of leave donations due to an unforeseen extended illness please pass on the form below for them
to complete and return to Human Resources to evaluate for eligibility and processing.
