Your comments invited on new nursing mothers policy
As part of the University of California’s commitment to support family caregiving responsibilities, UC proposes to establish Staff Policy 84, Accommodations for Nursing Mothers.
UC recognizes the importance and benefits of breastfeeding for both mothers and their infants and is proposing the new policy to provide:
- appropriate sanitary and private space for breastfeeding purposes in close proximity to the nursing mother’s work area
- a reasonable amount of time for lactation breaks
You can read the proposed policy in its entirety online. Employees covered by this policy who wish to provide comments may submit them to Employee and Labor Relations Manager Michael Lum at Michael.Lum@ucop.edu by 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28.
