Heavy snow expected for the greater Union County area. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 7 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze expected. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour possible. Winds gusting as high as 45 mph. The Freeholder Board advises you to take caution as travel will be very difficult. The hazardous conditions will impact the evening commute. A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
We would like the opportunity to once again remind all employees that the County of Union offices do not close during major weather or storm events.
As is the County of Union’s practice, if anyone designated as non-essential personnel feels he/she cannot safely travel to work during these possible weather events, please consider using vacation or personal time to stay home. If a State of Emergency affecting the County of Union is declared during a weather event, non-essential employees will be permitted to use their available sick, vacation, personal or comp time for their absence as per resolution 2014-481. If no accrued leave time is available, non-essential County of Union employees may take the day without pay.
