Employee Agreements Reached:  The University of Maine System has reached agreements with all of its bargaining units regarding implementation of its requirements for employee COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements.  The agreement encourages vaccination for all those who can in order to keep students, employees, and local communities as safe as possible.  The agreements require unvaccinated employees who work on campus to comply with public safety protocols including masking, regular asymptomatic testing and quarantine or isolation practices as appropriate.  


An employee who fails to comply with public safety protocols will be subject to progressive employment disciplinary action which may result in termination of employment.
