The board/administration want to impose furlough (non-paid) workdays on faculty. Source: http://www.wright.edu/administration/aaup/nego/FF/APPX-I-admin- revised(OCR).PDF
The university could institute a furlough of 10 non-paid days in a fiscal year. Source: https://policy.wright.edu/policy/8470-furlough-leave
The conditions include…
A composite SB 6 score of less than 2.40 within a 24-month period….
…which is the current state of WSU. We would still be expected to complete any teaching, research, and service requirements.
What a Furlough Means to Us:
10 furlough days would cost you 5.128% of your annual base salary
Base Salary/Year Furlough Days Impact to You
|$50,000||10||$2,564 pay cut|
|$75,000||10||$3,846 pay cut|
|$100,000||10||$5,128 pay cut|
If you have a different base salary, multiply by your yearly base salary * 5.128% to calculate the negative financial impact of 10 furlough days.
A furlough is the equivalent of stealing your money and would be implemented at the University’s discretion. We must reject this proposed furlough language.
