Re: Revised ASE initial appointment letter - access to gender neutral bathrooms.

Please be advised that the ASE initial appointment letter template has been revised in accordance to changes in the new UAW- BX contract found in Article 2 -Appointment and Article 20 - Non discrimination in employment.   The following language has been added; 

If an ASE anticipates the need for access to an all-gender restroom, the ASE or the Union on the ASE’s behalf shall contact the Department/hiring unit or the Labor Relations office atlabrel@berkeley.edu as soon as possible after receiving this notice of appointment.  The University will work with the ASE to accommodate the request.

If you receive a request for access to a gender neutral bathroom, it should handled in a confidential and respectful manner,  similar to any other kind of accommodation request you may receive.  Here is a list of potential accommodation options which you may find helpful.
