AFSCME / UPTE Strike and Absenteeism

The American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), joined in sympathy by University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE), will be conducting a 3-day strike at UC Davis Health and on the Davis campus. 

  • Beginning 4 a.m. on Tuesday, October 23
  • Concluding 3:59 a.m. on Friday, October 26

Absences During the Strike

While the University respects employees' right to strike, if any employees scheduled to work October 23-25, 2018 do not report to work, UC Davis will presume the absence is strike-related. All absences will be considered strike related unless they were pre-approved by the supervisor or medical certification is provided documenting that the employee was unable to work. 

Unapproved Leave Without Pay

If an employee’s absence between October 23 – 25, 2018 is not approved or cleared by medical documentation, that time will be designated as unapproved leave without pay.

Please contact your supervisor or your HR Business Partner.
