Cleaning supplies reminder

The Library Employee Advocacy Forum (LEAF) met with Yolanda and Marc a couple of weeks ago to address cleaning concerns that many departments have about Woodruff public and office spaces. Thanks to this meeting, some additional maintenance will be occurring and additional cleaning supplies have been ordered. From Marc:

  • Vacuum cleaners have been received and are available for use. For now, they are stored in the mailroom.
  • Cleaning supplies are in stock and available for use and also stored in the mailroom.
  • BRS (Building and Residential Services) has been asked to clean the breakroom and kitchenette areas on more frequent basis.
  • BRS will perform deep cleaning of Level 1 & 2 staff areas during winter break.

If you have any advocacy-related issues to discuss, please access our anonymous feedback form here: http://bit.ly/LEAF-form; Or reach out to your department’s LEAF Representative
