University of Saskatchewan offering buyouts to deal provincial budget cuts - The Canadian Press

The University of Saskatchewan is offering voluntary buyouts to its administrative staff to help cope with provincial budget cuts. An internal memo distributed to members of the Administrative and Supervisory Personnel Association on Wednesday said the university had reached an agreement with the union to offer a "voluntary exit incentive program" to employees. The association represents 1,100 workers at the university. Cheryl Carver, the university's assistant vice-president of human resources, said in the memo that the president has been clear that savings will be found in attrition and voluntary options. She added that staff salaries and benefits made up 70 per cent of the university's budget.
