Holiday office closures for this week, December and January

The holidays are fast approaching! UCOP offices will be closed on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 26 and 27, for Thanksgiving.

In addition, winter holidays will be observed this year on Dec. 24 and 25, and New Year holidays will be observed on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, but UCOP offices will be closed from Thursday, Dec. 24, through Sunday, Jan. 3, as follows:

  • Winter holidays (paid): Dec. 24, 25 and 31 and Jan. 1
  • Office closure (unpaid): Dec. 28, 29 and 30
  • Office reopens: Monday, Jan. 4, 2016

Eligible employees can use vacation, compensatory time or leave without pay to cover the three workdays during the closure. If you haven’t accumulated enough vacation leave by December to cover those days, arrangements can be made to allow you to borrow against future vacation time.

Each department head may identify essential services that must be maintained during this period and plan for staffing accordingly.

For questions about the holiday schedule, please contact Linda Klink in UCOP Local Human Resources.

Have Something To Say ?

    Again we are being forced to take time that we have earned for the holidays. This is a system-wide problem that has never been addressed properly. If our benefits are things we earn as UC employees, why are they being taken away?

    For those of us who don’t celebrate Christmas, it would be nice to be given the appropriate holiday off. I’d rather use the given time for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur (two days) than Christmas. Not only does management make us take three vacation days but they force those of us who are NOT Christian to take more vacation time for our important holy days.
