A few other facts about the furlough plan

  • Salary reductions will be reflected in October 1 paychecks. The plan is for one year, ending August 31, 2010.

  • Furlough days may only be taken during the 12-month period of the plan.

  • The furlough/salary reduction is subject to collective bargaining. The Office of the President has indicated it expects the unions to participate, said Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Dave Kliger.

  • A few categories of employees will be exempted, including:

    - staff and faculty whose pay is funded entirely by research contracts or grants;

    - student employees;

    - foreign nationals with H-type visas; and

    - employees currently on the START program whose reduction in time equals or exceeds the targeted reductions.
