Flinders U staff were expecting to knock off for Christmas lunchtime on Wednesday December 23 – not now
The university has added paid Christmas leave to cover the Monday and Tuesday prior, meaning when people go home on Friday the 18th they know they will be on holidays, courtesy of Flinders until the 28th. (Shutdown continues until January 8).
VC Colin Stirling says “it’s a way of thanking staff for their commitment and their contributions towards staying the course … in the face of incredible disruption.”
It’s enough to carol about, which, appropriately encouraged, Professor Stirling could do (CMM November 7 2016).
