MATERIAL SUPPORT SERVICES AND MAIL SERVICES
April 13, 2005
KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF (excluding UCSD Healthcare)
Earlier today, you received a message from Assistant Vice Chancellor Davis regarding AFSCME's notice of its intent to hold a one-day UC strike at all campuses. Should the strike occur, it will likely impact our schedule on Thursday, April 14th.
Most services will be provided as usual. We will, therefore, only highlight the areas that will experience modified service. The Storehouse will be unable to provide deliveries on Thursday except for perishables. Shipping services will be open, but customers need to bring items for shipping to the Storehouse. Surplus Sales services will be open, but we will not be able to come to your location to pick up your surplus items.
Mail Services will provide morning mail pick up/deliveries, but afternoon service may be curtailed. If your FedEx items are not picked up, we suggest that you go to off-campus locations. The nearest FedEx office is located at 9333 Genesee Avenue at Executive Drive (866-477-7529). UPS will not be available through Mail Services, but you can send mail and packages through off-campus sites. The nearest UPS office is located at 7770 Regents Rd, Ste 113 (858-453-7331).
Please share the above information with your staff so that they may best prepare for the temporary curtailment of our services for Thursday, April 14th. We hope and expect that there will be minimal disruption to your projects and schedules. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
