UPB -Initiating a Union Negotiated Vacation Payout

The Illinois Nurses Association (INA) and the SEIU Local 73 Technical (L-73) contracts allow for the annual payout of limited vacation benefits under the specific contract provisions.

Verify the contract specifications prior to initiating any transactions.

An annual allowable negotiated vacation payout requires two different adjustments that must be submitted:

  1. Initiate a Prior Underpayment Adjustment (PUA) in PARIS to pay out the vacation hours requested according to the contract provisions.
  2. Submit a Leave Balance Adjustment Request in the Adjustment Notification Application (ANA) to correct the employee’s vacation balance.

NOTE: Do not submit the Leave Balance Adjustment Request until after the PARIS PUA transaction has been paid to the employee (disposition 70).
