Presbyterian News Service: GAC Executive Committee announces mandatory furlough, elimination of 2010 salary increases
LOUISVILLE ― In the first two moves gauged to overcome a multi-million shortfall brought on by the global economic crisis, General Assembly Council (GAC) staff members at the Presbyterian Center were told today (March 6) that they will have an unpaid one-week furlough May 17-23 and will receive no salary increases in 2010.
The decision was made by the GAC Executive Committee during a conference call this week. Later this month, the GAC will review additional steps required to revise the 2009 and 2010 mission budgets.
Folks, it is this part of the job I really hate. We will have more tough decisions to make about a host of issues during this month. The staff is living in the midst of this daily. Please keep the staff and the board in your prayers as we seek God's wisdom.
