May Day events Wednesday, May 1

Dear employee,

Several community groups are planning rallies, marches, and other events for International Workers’ Day this Wednesday, May 1.

We value and respect the peaceful expression of political views and people exercising their First Amendment rights. Employees who are scheduled to work and wish to attend any of the May Day events must follow their department’s appropriate leave policies and take leave with the approval of their supervisor. For more information on your department’s leave policies, please refer to your Human Resources Manager.

May Day activities could affect traffic and transit. Be prepared for these impacts and allow extra time when you travel. Please check with your supervisor for specific information or instructions for your work unit. Any alternate work arrangements must be approved by your supervisor.
