Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately allow certain employees to contribute vacation and personal days on behalf of a certain court officer of the Springfield district court, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law or rule or regulation to the contrary, the Springfield district court is hereby authorized and directed to allow employees in the bargaining units represented by Local 254 S.E.I.U. and Local 6 O.P.E.I.U., and other employees of the Springfield district court, to voluntarily contribute one or more vacation or personal days to provide compensation for the period of employment of court officer Thomas J. Dalmolin while on sick leave from December thirty-first, nineteen hundred and ninety-one until the date of his death on January fifteenth, nineteen hundred and ninety-two. Said Thomas J. Dalmolin was unable to receive any compensation for this period of employment, because he had been compensated for all sick, personal and vacation days which had otherwise accrued for his benefit during his employment by December thirty-first, nineteen hundred and ninety-one.
