Notes on Gate Access to the Lab, Employee Absences if CUE
Blackberry Gate will be open during normal hours during the
strike days. The Grizzly Gate on Centennial Drive will also
be open throughout the day (7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Laboratory
employees, guests and vendors are to use one of these gates
to enter and to leave the premises during the strike days.
The Strawberry Gate off Centennial Drive, however, will be
designated as a "reserved" gate Monday through Wednesday
next week and will be available only to contractors and employees
working on the Molecular Foundry construction project, including
their subcontractors and the vendors supplying those contractors.
This is intended to allow the construction work to continue
unimpeded. Lab employees, guest and vendors are not to use
this gate and will be refused access.
absences during the strike
they have received advance approval for vacation, employees
are expected to report to work all three days of the strike.
Vacation requests may be denied or approval rescinded due
to operational necessity. All employees who call in sick on
a strike day will be required to provide a doctor's note upon
their return to work. Employees will not be paid for time
lost due to participating in a strike and will not be allowed
to use vacation leave to make up for the pay they lose because
of striking. In addition, employees absent without authorization
on a strike day may be subject to corrective action.
