Each full time employee will be credited with eight (8) hours of Personal Leave Program time (PLP 2012) on the first day of each pay period beginning July 2012 and continuing for twelve (12) consecutive pay periods afterward.

PLP  2012 must be used in the month in which it is earned.  PLP 2012 shall be requested and used by the employee in the same manner as vacation or annual leave.  If the employee has not submitted a PLP 2012 leave request by the 20th of the month in which PLP 2012 is accrued, the time shall be scheduled by his/her supervisor. When this is not operationally feasible, PLP 2012 shall be used before any other leave except sick leave.  The terms of this PLP 2012 will be subject to the terms described in Article 9.22 (Personal Leave Program 2010) in the UAPD Bargaining Unit 16 MOU.

Employees currently enrolled in the Voluntary Personal Leave Program (VPLP) will have the ability to opt out of VPLP during the month of July 2012.
