More Cuts May Affect Non-Rep Employees

Managers and other non-represented employees here could contribute 5 percent of health insurance costs effective Jan. 1, 2012 as part of budget cuts that the Board of Education is likely to consider next week.

The potential cuts for non-represented employees include up to seven furlough days in fiscal year 2011-12.  That same fiscal year, step and column advancement would be suspended for these employees.  The cuts are part of an agenda item that is planned for the school board’s meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Also part of the school board agenda item is a plan to achieve $300,000 in savings through a central office reorganization.

The proposed cuts follow similar provisions for seven furlough days and a 5 percent contribution on health insurance that were approved by the school board this week for CSEA Unit A workers.

The reductions proposed for next week’s school board meeting, combined with the recent savings achieved with CSEA, total nearly $7 million, including more than $1.2 million in ongoing savings.
