You may have recently received an email from Senior Vice President Fernandez regarding university closure during this upcoming winter that said the following:
Employees in Legacy Rutgers Positions
Employees in legacy Rutgers positions shall not report to work unless otherwise instructed and are not required to charge credited leave time to receive compensation for the day. Employees in legacy Rutgers positions designated as Essential Services personnel, as defined in Policy 60.1.29, may be required to report for work on December 24, 2018 and remain at work that day as set forth in Policy 60.3.19.
Keep in mind that this benefit for Rutgers staff was first negotiated by the URA-AFT in 2007 and since then it has been extended by policy to others. This is one of the benefits of having a strong union and dedicated membership.
