Campus Employee Furloughs:
For the past 10 years the CSU system has suffered chronic under-funding. This year, because of the state economic crisis, the budget cuts are draconian, $584 million, the worst ever in decades. The CSU administration is attempting to manage these cuts by dramatically increasing student fees and by furloughing almost all University employees, including faculty, staff, and administrators. A furlough means mandatory un-paid days off for employees; there are 18 of these this year for faculty.
The days when I’m forced to cancel class because of the furloughs will be announced on the class calendar. These days off are not holidays; they are a very concrete example of how budget cuts have consequences. If you would like to take action, or simply learn more, I strongly recommend you contact ASI: http://www.csustan.edu/ASI/
