TEA will hold its Annual Meeting on December 5th in the Chinook King meeting rooms on the 7th floor from noon to 1:00 p.m. Members will vote for TEA President, Vice President and Secretary during the first 30 minutes of the meeting.

With the passing of the TEA Wastewater contract, WTD TEA members now have a one-time option in 2012 to move up to 40 hours of accrued leave. You can choose to move hours from your benefit time bank to your sick leave bank or visa-versa you can elect to take up to 40 hours of sick leave and move it to your benefit time bank.

Please complete the form and return it to Cindy Burch indicating what you would like to do. Send Cindy the form even if you do not want to make a transfer so that she will know your wishes. WTD expects the transfer to be completed by pay period ending November 23 and reflect your December 6 paycheck. Please send your response to Cindy Burch by noon Monday, November 26, 2012.

Another opportunity for a one-time transfer of 30-hours will occur during the first quarter of 2013. Members will be able to cash out 40 hours by April 1, 2013.
