On 8 June, the Vice-Chancellor announced in her all-staff message that this year all University staff have been granted an additional day’s leave on Friday 26 June
This long weekend is to recognise the concentrated efforts of colleagues throughout the University at this time, and to reflect the absence of the traditional UAS staff garden party and other end-of-year celebrations.
If it is operationally impossible for you to take leave on 26 June, or if you are already on annual leave or take sick leave on that date, you should agree with your line manager an alternative day as close as possible to 26 June - ideally the following Friday, 3 July.
If you do not usually work on Fridays, you should agree with your line manager whichever day, as close as possible to 26 June, will extend your weekend.
If you have any further queries, please contact your line manager or local HR team.
