Sick Leave Bank Enrollment Held Sept. 1-30

Current members don't need to enroll.

What is Sick Leave Bank and who is eligible for the benefit?
The Sick Leave Bank is available to employees covered by the negotiated agreements for the Albuquerque Teacher’s Federation, the Albuquerque Educational Assistant Association and the Albuquerque Secretarial/Clerical Association. Respective negotiated agreements provide this benefit to participants who will exhaust all accrued leave (personal, sick, annual) and are experiencing a catastrophic illness or injury.  Application for benefits from the Sick Leave Bank must be made in a timely manner prior to the exhaustion of available leave in order to ensure no interruption of pay.

How can I enroll for SLB?

Each eligible employee must complete the APS Sick Leave Bank Enrollment form authorizing payroll deductions for membership in the Bank. Employees on leave of absence are not eligible to participate in the Sick Leave Bank. Members returning from leave of absence should verify their re-enrollment with the Sick Leave Bank Specialist. Part-time employees are also eligible for enrollment in the Sick Leave Bank.

Bi-weekly payroll deductions as stated on the Sick Leave Bank enrollment form are continuous and subject to committee review annually. Current rates for membership in the Sick Leave Bank are listed below:

    • Employees covered by the Albuquerque Teachers Federation: Pay $5.75 per paycheck
    • Employees covered by the Albuquerque Secretarial/Clerical Association: Pay $5.50 per paycheck.
    • Employees covered by the Albuquerque Educational Assistants Association: Pay $5.25 per paycheck.

    Sick Leave Bank policies and procedures are located on the APS policies and procedures website. Extended Leave and Sick Leave Bank, or at atfunion.org.

    Questions regarding the Sick Leave Bank may be directed to Loretta Olson, Sick Leave Bank Specialist, at 889-4858.
