GA Leave Summary: It is very important to note that GA’s are expected to work for their full appointment period. Time off or     leaves of absence during an appointment period are governed by two separate articles in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University and the GEU-UAW.  First, time off during academic break periods (for example, when classes are not in session) is governed by Article 10 (Workload).  Leaves of Absence during all other periods of time during the appointment period is governed by Article 15 (Leaves of Absence). View link above to learn more about Short-Term Absences (3 days or less), Non-Parental Extended Leave of Absences (4 or More Days), and Maternity Leave.
