UNIVERSITY WINTER CLOSURE (12/24/10 - 1/2/11)

The University has developed a website regarding the University's Winter Closure.  The website is http://www1.umn.edu/tchome-stage/faculty-staff/closure/index.htm.  This site will continue to provide updated information regarding the closure, so please check it frequently and determine the pertinent information to communicate within your unit.  The Office of Human Resources (OHR) sent a message to the Faculty and P/A employee group, and one to the CS/BU employee group regarding the Winter Closure.  Those messages are listed below.  For questions, please contact Scott Elton (elton003@umn.edu, 6-0950) or Margaret Yzaguirre (mmy@umn.edu, 6-9352)

==========================================================

To: Academic Staff, Twin Cities Campus
From: Carol Carrier, Vice President for the Office of Human Resources

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus will be closed from December 24, 2010, through January 2, 2011. During this time, heat will be turned down and buildings will be locked but accessible through normal security. The closure period includes:

  • Two weekends, December 25-26 and January 1-2
  • Official University holidays on December 24 and 31
  • A floating holiday on December 27
  • Three work days, December 28-30, for all academic staff
  • Three furlough days, December 28-30, for all Civil Service and Bargaining Unit staff

Academic staff took a temporary pay cut for fiscal year 2010-11, so you are not being asked to take unpaid furlough days during the closure. However, you are encouraged to use your personal holiday, which can be combined with vacation time and/or voluntary furlough days, to take time off during the closure. If you do not use your personal holiday, take vacation time, and/or take voluntary furlough days, you are expected to work offsite December 28-30 unless required by your supervisor to work onsite. Work plans for these days must be discussed with your supervisor, following the procedures they have established.

Please note that the closure period includes one payday on Wednesday, December 29. For those on direct deposit, paychecks will be deposited as usual. For those not on direct deposit, paychecks will be mailed on December 27 to home addresses. Please allow time for mail processing and check Employee Self-Service to be sure that we have your correct home address. If you are interested in signing up for direct deposit, you can do so through Employee Self-Service.

Closing the University of Minnesota for one week is a complicated task. It impacts everyone in our system, and it impacts each of us in different ways. We want to make sure that every member of our community has the information needed to plan accordingly. Watch your inbox for more information on this topic, talk with your supervisor about impacts specific to your work group, and check our online Q&A for additional information.

*Note that coordinate campus closure dates vary. See the online Q&A for dates by campus.

From: Carol Carrier, Vice President for the Office of Human Resources

  • A floating holiday on December 27
  • Three furlough days, December 28-30, for all Civil Service and Bargaining Unit employees

With the exception of notified staff, Civil Service and Bargaining Unit employees will not be expected to work and will not be paid for December 28-30. These three unpaid, mandatory furlough days will impact paychecks on January 12. Be sure to review your personal budget and plan for this one-time reduction in pay. Employees who are required to work during the furlough must complete a Furlough Request Form and arrange alternate furlough dates with their supervisor.

Please note that the closure period includes one payday on Wednesday, December 29. For those on direct deposit, paychecks will be deposited as usual. For those not on direct deposit, paychecks will be mailed on December 27 to home addresses.
