Charge 2: Continue to closely monitor the use of Recruitment and Retention Funds. Report due to faculty senate by the November 12, 2009 meeting. Cashion and Cooper report is attached. b. Closely monitor UW-L’s implementation of the UW-System Furlough Policy and make any recommendations concerning needed changes. Consider the question of whether expectations for retention, promotion and tenure need to be adjusted to reflect lost time. Report due to faculty senate by the December 3, 2009 meeting. PTS Statement DRAFT regarding Adjustments in Work Expectations due to Furlough Policy The PTS Committee recommends that adjustments to expectations for retention, promotion and tenure are not necessary due to the implementation of the UW-System Furlough Policy. The committee views the furlough policy as a reduction in pay more so than a reduction in work expectations. This recommendation is based on the temporary nature of the furlough policy (two years); difficulty of implementing adjustments due to furlough; and the clock stoppage policies that are already available. If the furlough policy is renewed for another two year period, becomes on-going or permanent, this issue should be readdressed. c. Monitor any issues that may arise related to collective bargaining as the year progresses. Jennifer Miskowski will update. 3. Adjourn
