Furlough Summary: Administration Term–“Cost Savings Days”

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:

 Financial impact:

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.

Summary

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.
