To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Chancellor George Blumenthal

In a letter today to the UC community, President Yudof reports that he has received thousands of comments regarding options under consideration for salary reductions and/or furloughs for UC faculty and staff. He includes some of the most frequently heard concerns and says he will consider them carefully before bringing a final proposal to the Regents at their July meeting.
