University of Alaska announces furloughs for administrative staff next year to cut costs - Associated Press

The University of Alaska's president has approved a plan to furlough 167 administrative personnel for as many as 10 days to cut costs. Employees will be required to take as many as 10 unpaid days off next year, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1b1S6zp ) reported. The plan is expected to save the cash-strapped UA system about $600,000, according to a memo President Pat Gamble sent to staff on Friday. Gamble viewed the move as the most effective way to make system-wide cuts, university spokeswoman Carla Beam said. Administrative personnel were selected for the furlough plan to show leadership amid a difficult fiscal climate, Beam said. "It felt like the right thing to do," she said. http://www.dailyjournal.net/view/story/97439299802e484aa332a097ebed7d69/AK--University-Cuts/
