Facilities Management

You may have noticed some new faces in your area--Building Services staff who may be still coming up to speed on the care of spaces new to them. Facilities Management provided the following statement regarding the "bumping" process:

Facilities Operations recently went through a series of job changes to provide better service to our customers and improve efficiencies. Local 263 staff just completed a bid/bump exercise as part of this change. Starting the week of September 21st, staff began moving into their new assignments. Please note that not all staff were impacted by this exercise, but there were several staff changes. These staffing changes should not impact services. If you have questions, please contact Michael Lane, Director of Operations.
