ianjoh@ausjenkins0:~$ timedatectl
      Local time: Mon 2017-03-06 03:35:05 PST
  Universal time: Mon 2017-03-06 11:35:05 UTC
        RTC time: Mon 2017-03-06 11:35:06
       Time zone: America/Los_Angeles (PST, -0800)
 Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
 RTC in local TZ: no

I want the system time to be the Universal/RTC time but can't figure it out. How can I set this up?
