Union Release Time

University employees who are members of a collective bargaining unit may request release time.

Release time is time off from normal working duties/hours to conduct bargaining unit business. Employees and managers should consider the operational needs of the department when requesting or granting release time.

Management approval is required before union release time may be granted. Release time requests can be submitted via email to the laborrelations-group.

Contact OEO/ER team with any questions.
