Physical Plant Employees on Work-Share to Return to Full-Time Status

All Physical Plant employees in the Work-Share Program will return to full-time status (40 hours per week) beginning August 2, 2020. Work-Share has been extended through July 31.

We know we won’t be returning to normal operations this fall. Physical Plant leadership is working closely with our campus partners to make sure we have a Smart Restart during the COVID-19 pandemic. New health and safety plans include extra classes in the evenings and on Saturdays to support physical distancing, and more required cleaning and disinfecting.

Each one of us needs to help keep our campus healthy and safe when classes start on September 2. We’re exploring different ideas to support campus during this time, such as:

  • Rotating work schedules
  • Changing shift hours
  • Hiring part-time employees

We plan to include you in our discussions about these options. Please watch for more information in the coming weeks.

I want to thank you for all your hard work and understanding during this challenging time. I look forward to seeing you all back to work full-time at the beginning of August.

If you have specific questions about your work schedule, please contact your supervisor.

Thank you,

Kris Ackerbauer
Director, Physical Plant Services
Facilities Planning & Management
