Maintenance & Upkeep
Over the coming weeks, ABM will be cleaning out food that has been left in common area refrigerators in order to avoid food spoilage and maintain a healthy environment. ABM will throw away loose food such as fruits and vegetables as well as any containers of food that have been left behind. Any lunch bags or small coolers containing food will also be thrown away. Condiments will be left in the refrigerators. ABM will not remove anything from freezers and will not empty refrigerators located in offices or labs.
Faculty and Staff Parking
Payroll deduction for faculty and staff parking will be suspended. We are working closely with the state and hope this will be effective beginning with the April 17 pay.
