Spring Campus Curtailment 2010

To: UCSC Academic and Staff Employees

From: Charlotte Moreno, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Staff Human Resources; Pamela Peterson, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Academic Personnel

Our 2010 Spring Campus Curtailment is scheduled for a two-day period: Thursday, March 25, 2010 through Friday, March 26, 2010.

  • March 25, 2010 is not a paid university holiday

  • March 26, 2010 is a paid university holiday (Cesar Chavez Day)

As March 25, 2010 is not a paid holiday, this curtailment day may result in employees using vacation, accrued compensatory time off, or leave without pay. Additionally, employees participating in the Furlough/Salary Reduction Program have the option to use a furlough day to cover this day, and are encouraged to do so. Eligible employees may use a furlough day in advance of accrual with supervisor approval.

Due to the diverse responsibilities of academic appointees and the flexibility in performing their obligations, it is anticipated that some academic appointees may continue working during this curtailment period.

Clerical employees participating in the UC CUE Temporary Layoff Program may choose to use a temporary layoff day (with or without pay) dependent upon their individual temporary layoff agreement.

All employees who accrue vacation may use one (1) day of vacation leave in advance of actual accruals to cover the curtailment day, if needed. Please refer to the appropriate Collective Bargaining Agreement for specific guidance. Further, employees normally required to wait six (6) months before using accrued vacation will be allowed to use one (1) vacation day even if this required waiting period has not been completed.
