Stanford University & SLAC

During this time, Stanford University (including SLAC) has made the commitment to continue to pay workers their full base rate at their appropriate FTE status no matter how many hours worked through April 15, 2020.  Their commitment and all of the details can be found on the employer’s website cardinal@work.

SLAC has not put a specific date on their commitment to continue paying workers during this time. Their coronavirus emergency page reads :”All staff will continue to be compensated during the curtailment period.”

Bargaining unit members who have been deemed “essential” or are required to periodically come back to campus for “essential work” will receive a 10% premium for all hours worked. Local leaders negotiated this premium on behalf of the over 600 workers that are still working Stanford affiliated work sites. This premium went into effect at 12:01am on Tuesday, March 17th and will remain until April 7th, 2020. You can find all of the details in side letter 15.

On March 27th, 2020, Stanford University announced a  temporary hiring “pause” for most staff positions. This includes any new open positions that have yet to be posted; those positions that are currently in the interview process; and those that have pending offers – unless specifically approved. There are currently bargaining unit positions open within the School of Medicine, Business Affairs, Residential and Dining Enterprises, the Dean of Research Office, LBRE, and Athletics.

The SLAC laboratory does not appear to have a hiring pause.
