OUS staff contract signed

9/6/2009: From the AP:

… The tentative agreement calls for eight to 16 unpaid furlough days over 21 months pegged to salary levels and a one-year freeze of scheduled raises. … Before the agreement was reached, workers had begun preparing for a possible strike after Chancellor George Pernsteiner demanded far deeper cuts.

This is 2 months after Pernsteiner and the OUS Board gave retiring UO President Frohnmayer a “President Emeritus” contract promising him $295,000 for teaching one 20 student class per year. The OUS still has not provided the minutes of the meeting at which they approved this giveaway.
