Reminder: University closing Friday for ‘furlough day’
UW-Green Bay will be closed for general business activities Friday (Nov. 26), the first of four campuswide furlough days identified by the University in response to state-ordered budget cuts. All state employees including those at UW-Green Bay are required to take as many as eight furlough days annually and to accept a corresponding 3 percent reduction in earnings. University officials identified four low-traffic dates when the campus will close and all employees (except critical staff) will be off work without pay.
Those dates are:
* Nov. 26, 2010
* Dec. 27, 2010
* Jan. 14, 2011
* May 27 , 2011
Not a ghost town, however
While the UW-Green Bay campus will be closed for general business activities on Nov. 26, the campus won’t quite be a ghost town. For example, there will still be some students staying in campus housing. Also, the Prevea Classic Breast Cancer Awareness Basketball Tournament, a six-team, two-day, boy’s and girl’s high school basketball tournament, will be held Nov. 26 and 27 at the Kress Events Center. A few University services will reopen Saturday, Nov. 27, with normal holiday weekend hours resuming for such campuswide resources as the Cofrin Library.
