Mindful of the rising electricity cost and expenses, the AdU Administration will once again observe the Compressed Workweek Program where the workforce and students will only spend 4 days in a week for classes and work. March 23, 2009 will be the first non-working Monday. Last year, a similar scheme was also implemented, with Friday as the non-working day. This year’s will last until May 22, 2009.
Whatever savings brought about by the program can augment the budget for the other needs of the University. Likewise, the Administration believes that this program will benefit both employees and students in terms of cost savings from daily transportation and meal expenses.
The said program by the administration is in compliance with CHED, DOLE-NCR requirements and in agreement with the AUFEA. Employees are to report from Tuesday-Friday, given the options of adjusting their work schedule. Offices are advised to adopt a common schedule (either 7:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. or 8:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.) so as not to defeat the purpose of the scheme.
The Janitorial agency personnel, Security agency personnel, Admission Section, the College of Law and Professional School classes, however, are exempted from this scheme.
Meanwhile, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bro. Henry Escurel, C.M., has requested for class schedules as well: 2.5 hours of classes for 3-unit subjects; and 4 hours for 5-unit subjects starting April 14 until May 21 for summer classes.
Employees are to resume regular work schedule on May 25, 2009. The whole Adamson community is expected to comply with the program and participate to help reduce the expenses of the University. CLG
