Important correction about yesterday's HOTLINE


In yesterday's HOTLINE message on the tentative contract agreement in General Government, we erred in describing one aspect of the temporary salary reduction of 3 percent and the accompanying temporary salary reduction leave of 5.2 hours a month.

We incorrectly stated the temporary salary reduction leave was unpaid leave. It is not.

In fact, it would be paid leave you could bank up. The resulting savings to payroll costs still works out to 3 percent, generating the $330 million in savings the governor referred to. As we said, we will have a detailed summary on all parts of the contract in advance of the ratification vote.
