The boom lowers in California

Straight from the horse’s mouth:

UC Regents on July 16 approved a systemwide furlough plan for UC employees as part of a strategy for coping with state budget cuts. The plan calls for employees to take from 11 to 24 days off without pay, beginning Sept. 1 for a 12-month period. That amounts to pay reductions of 4 percent to 10 percent. The furlough plan is based on salary, with those who earn more absorbing a larger pay cut than those who earn less.

The furlough plan cost-saving is expected to equal about one-fourth of UC’s current $813 million state budget cut


The plan is effective Sept. 1, 2009. Employees who are subject to the plan will participate for 12 months, until Aug. 31, 2010. For employees who are paid monthly, the salary reduction will be reflected in their September paycheck, which is issued around Oct. 1, 2009. For employees who are paid bi-weekly, the reduction will begin with the first full pay period in September. Employees can begin using furlough days as early as Sept. 1, with the approval of their supervisor, manager or department head.[…]

The plan includes all full- and part-time UC employees, including, but not limited to, non-represented staff, represented staff and academics, Academic Senate faculty, non-Senate faculty, non-Senate academics, and members of the Health Sciences Compensation Plan. For union-represented employees, implementation of the plan will be subject to collective bargaining agreements and all applicable laws.
