The UC Regents implemented a policy in late 2019, titled Contracting Out for Covered Services, that supports and augments the UC's contract with AFSCME. This policy is essentially synonymous with the term "Article 5".

The intent is to insource, to the maximum extent possible, the following services:

  • cleaning, custodial, janitorial, or housekeeping services
  • food services
  • laundry services
  • grounds keeping
  • building maintenance (excluding skilled crafts)
  • transportation and parking services
  • security services
  • billing and coding services
  • sterile processing
  • hospital or nursing assistant services
  • medical imaging or other medical technician services

If your department purchases services for these categories, please submit a ServiceNow ticket to Labor Relations at:
