Explaining UC Davis, UCOP Curtailment Plans

by Dave Jones, Dateline

Tuesday (Oct. 27), UC Davis announced that most Davis campus staff will be required to take six days off around the winter holidays. Later that day, the UC Office of the President updated its own time-off proposal.

Quick Summary

  • System leaders are considering a proposal under which employees would take a minimum 5 days off
  • Separately, UC Davis has already designated 6 days off for most Davis campus staff
  • Only the UCOP proposal requires at least some unpaid leave, except for the lowest-paid employees

These curtailment plans are separate from each other. Also, the reasons behind them are different, which is why the Davis campus plan will be implemented differently than the UCOP plan if it is implemented as proposed.
