Main campus open; classes can continue; demonstration ongoing

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Public Affairs

Both entrances to the main campus are open, with the demonstration by AFSCME service workers and others continuing.

Classes can continue as scheduled. Students should look for messages from their instructor about whether classes are proceeding as normal or with alternate arrangements.

The campus community should drive carefully and allow extra travel time in the event there’s congestion on roadways to campus.

Because of the strike, some services will be limited or unavailable.

Campus shuttles will not be running, though Disability Van Service is available by calling 831-459-2829 to request service. Santa Cruz Metro buses will not come onto campus during protests. Metro will provide modified service, using bus stops on Bay Street near the main entrance or on High Street near Western Drive.

Dining Services is planning to offer hot meals at the Colleges 9 and 10 Dining Hall starting at 7 a.m.

Campus employees should immediately notify their supervisors if they feel threatened, harassed, or intimidated about crossing a picket line, or if they are prevented from working by picketers or striking employees. In cases of emergency, please dial 9-1-1.

More updates will be shared throughout the day at
