Request Your PD Day

Your Professional Development leave is a benefit negotiated by your union, under Article 9, Section 27 of our MOUs. You do not have to provide documentation or justification to your supervisor in order to use this leave. Here are some other things to keep in mind when making your request:

  1. Requests must be made 20 days in advance.
  2. No more than 40 bargaining unit members may take Professional Development on the same date, approved on a first-come, first-served basis.
  3. If your department cannot grant your original request due to staffing shortages or business need, an alternative date must be scheduled.

NOTE: If after one week you do not hear that your Professional Development (PD) Day has been approved - Follow up with your supervisor to see if they received the approval email.
