The University of Toledo will shut down Dec. 28-31, and its nonunion personnel will be required to take their furlough days during that time.
The university announced last week its intent to have all employees take at least one furlough day to offset about $1.3 million of an $8 million budget deficit. While the administration is negotiating the furlough days with its unions, UT released the mandatory furlough days of its nonbargaining unit employees.
Those who make less than $40,000 a year and will receive a 2 percent pay increase in January will have one furlough day. Those who make $40,000 to $100,000 but will not get a raise also will have one furlough day.
Nonunion employees who make more than $100,000 will have two furlough days. Most personnel in this group are administrators and middle management.
The furlough days will be required on Dec. 28 and/or Dec. 29. For the other days UT will be shut down that week, employees can use vacation, personal days, or compensatory time or choose to go unpaid.
