Dear UCSB Teamsters,

It is with heavy hearts that we watch the continuing tragedy unfolding all around us on the central coast. Many of our friends and co-workers have been impacted by the flooding and mudslides along the areas burned during last month’s devastating fire. We all feel a deep sense of loss throughout the campus and the community, and the need to come together as a community and as a Union.
Teamsters Local 2010 members stood together during the fires last month, signing petitions, writing letters, and marching to the Chancellor’s Office, to make sure that the University protects workers’ safety, and we won paid time off for affected workers. With recent events, the Union has continued to insist that management treat workers fairly, and we are pleased that UCSB has extended its paid emergency leave policy from the fire. Anyone unable to report to work due to the effects of the flooding, including evacuation orders, road closures, or threats to personal or family safety should request emergency leave from their departmental manager or supervisor.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding requests for emergency leave being denied or going unpaid, please contact your Union Representative.

As always, our primary concern is you, and ensuring your safety and well being.

The Central Labor Council has set up a fund for those affected by the fire and the floods. If you have lost your home or have been displaced and are in need of aid please apply at the website below for assistance. Your representative can help if you have any questions.

We remain committed to keeping you updated as the situation evolves.
In Solidarity,

Laurence Young
