Update #29, 7 April 2020 14:30 hrs

In this update, you will find information about the imminent restrictions on crossing the Dutch-German border and we bring two topics to your attention once again: the UM Job Board and the upcoming elections.

Crossing the German border with your UM card

Because Germany has designated the whole of the Netherlands as a risk area, controls at the Dutch-German border are now being tightened. It will still be possible to commute to work. For the time being, your UM card is sufficient proof of your need to cross the border. Should the policy become more restrictive at any time and an employer's declaration be required, then this will be easy to obtain via email. Further instructions will be given as soon as this situation arises.

UM Job Board can still use jobs

The UM Job Board of the Staff Career Centre has already received a number of registrations from employees who are currently unable to do their regular work and (in consultation with their manager) are willing and able to perform other jobs. Managers seem to be having a bit more difficulties with registering jobs. For this reason, we are making a repeated call, especially to managers: register your jobs at the UM Job Board. Both the registration of jobs and the registration by employees can easily be done through the website of the Staff Career Centre.

Nominate yourself for a representation council

In order to do justice to student and employee participation, the elections for the student sections of the Faculty and University Councils, as well as elections for the Service Councils of the Service Centres and MUO, will go forward as planned. Do you want to be a candidate for the council elections?

It is possible to submit nominations for candidates (including yourself) from 6 to 14 April via: https://elections.maastrichtuniversity.nl/.  

Voting will be possible from 25 to 28 May. More information about the elections can be found at: www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/elections
