Furlough bill

WWU has delivered its guidance to the Office of Financial Management. You can read it here (pdf). In short, we're looking at a choice between one furlough day, or leaving tenure track faculty positions open for the next 18 months. WWU management like the second option, since furloughs are problematical due to the different ways they'd be handled in the different classes of employees.

Nice to know. I really didn't want to muck with 11 such days.
