OFFICE OF THE VICE CHANCELLOR-
September 18, 2013
ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO (excluding UC San Diego Health System)
During the 2013 holiday season, UC San Diego (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially close for eleven (11) days between Saturday, December 21, 2013 and Wednesday, January 1, 2014. This closure will result in significant energy savings from reduced operations.
The closure period includes four (4) University paid holidays (December 24, 25 and 31, 2013 and January 1, 2014). Staff employees must charge any working days during the closure period not covered by paid holidays to accrued vacation, accrued compensatory time off (non-exempt only), or leave without pay. Academic employees on fiscal year appointments must charge the time off to accrued vacation or leave without pay.
Non-represented employees who do not have accrued vacation or accrued compensatory time off to cover the four (4) working days during the closure (December 23, 26, 27 and 30) may request a one-time advance of up to four (4) days of vacation to cover the absence. Non-represented employees who elect to take leave without pay for up to four (4) days of the closure period will continue to accrue vacation and sick leave credits. For exclusively represented employees, these closure days will be handled in accordance with the existing contract provisions or collective bargaining where applicable.
UC San Diego departments and units that need to remain open during the closure period must notify their respective vice chancellors to do so.
