Note from Staff Council President Karmen Swim
Wow...this is my last Staffline
letter. I hope it finds each of you relaxing after a
very busy academic year!
The Staff Council Committees are doing
some critical and essential work on behalf of the
staff...and this work has led to so many successes for
the staff in the last two years creating a buzz and
excitement around our work.
To highlight a few recent "wins" for the
UVM non-represented staff: Staff Professional
Development Fund (first round of awards expected to take
place this September), Short-Term Disability Benefit for
Staff (you'll be able to enroll during this fall's Open
Enrollment Period), and the recently-announced Birthday
Holiday/Cultural Holiday for Non-Represented Staff -
effective 1/1/19). Continue reading...
