    Post-strike Unity and Respect

    Dear UCSF Community:

    This week’s labor strike was a trying time for UCSF. It was difficult for everyone: our patients, those who came to work as usual, those on the picket lines, and those who volunteered after hours.

    Our services ran smoothly to the extent possible, and throughout the strike employees across UCSF functioned as a team. In addition, we were able to provide safe, quality care to those with urgent needs that could not be postponed.

    Over the next few weeks, UCSF Health will continue to feel the impact of the strike due to the need to accommodate those who had procedures, appointments, and treatments rescheduled.

    Notice of Strike

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    We have received notice from several unions that they will strike or participate in a sympathy strike at UCSF and across the University of California (UC) system beginning the week of May 7, ending May 10, 2018. Please read below for more details.

    We value our employees and respect their rights to representation and freedom of speech; that said, striking is a serious matter, especially when it directly affects vital public services such as patient care. Every day, our patients entrust their lives to us, and in turn, we are responsible for ensuring that they receive the highest quality care in a safe and secure environment.

    2018 Staff Engagement Survey

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    On April 24, you will receive an invitation to participate in the 2018 UCSF Staff Engagement Survey. This survey is important for helping us understand the progress toward our shared goal of making UCSF a great place to work.

    Since 2011, Gallup has conducted five engagement surveys at UCSF. Over the years, you and your managers have worked hard to develop and implement action plans across departments and units, which have resulted in a steady increase in overall staff engagement.

    I am pleased to share a few highlights of our recent findings and progress. You can read more about the survey and activities across the university in Pulse of UCSF.

    Celebrating NIH Funding, UCSF’s Advocacy

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    Last Friday, Congress passed, and the President signed into law, an annual funding bill that included a $3 billion increase in NIH research funding, as well as significant increases to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, and other important federal research programs. This remarkable growth in research funding reflects determined advocacy efforts that spanned the academic community.
