University to Close on Tuesday (Feb 13, 2024)
Due to an impending snowstorm, which is forecast to last most of the day, the University will be closed on Tuesday (Feb. 13).
All Tuesday classes – both in-person and online – are canceled.
Level II (non-essential) staff should not report to campus. Please refer to this afternoon’s message from HR (reprinted below), and check with your supervisor regarding your remote working status. Level 1 staff are required to report to campus.
Residential students and any employees leaving their vehicles on campus overnight are asked to move their vehicles to the parking garages this evening so that snow clean up on Tuesday can continue unimpeded.
Connecticut Hall will be open for a brunch schedule from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday with dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. All other food locations will be closed.
Stay safe and warm!
Dear Campus Colleagues,
With the anticipated winter weather, please find below guidance for how closures should be handled for different categories of level 2 (non-essential) employees on our campus who report their time in CORE:
Clerical (NP-3), Administrative and Residual (A&R)
NP-3 and A&R employees are covered by the SEBAC Agreement on Final Telework Policy. Section 8.3 of the Agreement provides that employees who are already scheduled to telework during a closure, late opening, or early dismissal should continue to telework. When reporting time, they should use time reporting code REGTC.
In accordance with their collective bargaining agreement, A&R employees who work (including telework) during a Governor’s closure NP-3 and A&R employees not scheduled to telework during a closure, late opening, or early dismissal are not required to telework, and should code their time as LWWTR.
Administrative Faculty (SUOAF) and Management Confidential (MC)
SUOAF and MC employees who have a telework agreement and are regularly permitted to telework are expected to telework during a closure, late opening, or early dismissal. When reporting time, they should use time reporting code REGTC. This expectation does not apply to situational telework. For example, if an employee is permitted to telework a few times per year because of a personal issue, but does not have regular telework days, they are not expected to telework during a closure.
SUOAF and MC employees who do not have a telework agreement and are not regularly permitted to telework are not required to do so during a closure, late opening, or early dismissal. They should code their time as LWWTR.
Protective Services (NP-5), Facilities (NP-2)
NP-5 and NP-2 are level 1 (essential) employees, and may be expected to work during a closure. They should consult their collective bargaining agreement, and contact their supervisor or HR for guidance as needed.
While they must ensure that operational needs are met, supervisors and managers should be as flexible as possible in allowing employees to tend to personal issues that may arise as a result of a weather-related emergency. For example, where possible, employees should be permitted to flex their time to pick up children whose school has been impacted by the weather-related emergency, shovel snow, etc.
