UCSF ACADEMIC SENATE RESOLUTION PROTESTING UNIFORM CUTS FOR UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA FACULTY AND STAFF
WHEREAS President Yudof proposed an 8% reduction in salary and/or time for all University of California faculty and staff, regardless of the source(s) of their salary;
WHEREAS University of California faculty and staff receive their salary support from a variety of sources, including State and non-State sources, and reducing compensation for faculty and staff who receive salary support from non-State sources will not address the University’s financial problems;
WHEREAS to the extent that reductions in compensation for University of California faculty and staff result in reduced work hours, these reductions in compensation may have an adverse impact on essential services that require full time staffing such as patient care;
WHEREAS reductions in compensation for University of California faculty and staff will have a deleterious effect on the financial well being of the University of California by reducing contributions to the UCRP when such contributions are initiated and by reducing indirect cost recoveries if salary reductions on extramural grants are redirected to equipment purchases, and;
WHEREAS the 10 campuses of the University of California have varied responsibilities for assuring and sustaining specific services to the public (e.g. health care) as well as diverse academic programs, scientific commitments and related personnel;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that reductions in funding for UC faculty and staff be distributed to each campus in proportion to the state (19900) funds that each campus receives, and that the individual campuses determine how such reductions should be distributed among faculty and staff.
