Professional Development days, Article 11.01H

The union position regarding the “10 days PD” that all faculty are entitled to under article 11.01H has not changed since the memo written by Richard Mason back in 2002 .

There has been some mention at staff meetings that managers may send back PD requests if there is not enough detail provided about the activities. If you are not asking for any funding for your PD from the college, then they do not require details on what you will be doing with that time as it is a negotiated benefit, much like your vacation days.

Read the memo linked to above, and if you have concerns about getting your PD request approved, please speak to a union Steward for advice.
