Furloughs: Mayor Jackson takes another Step towards a Balanced 2010 Budget


CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Mayor Frank Jackson is taking more steps to balance next years budget.

A letter went out non-union workers basically telling them that they would be forced to take 10 unpaid days off in 2010.

The city picked five days and the other five are up to employees.

The days are as follows:

April 5th; the day after Easter

July 2nd; the Friday before the 4th of July

August 2nd

October 11th; Columbus Day

November 26th; the day after Thanksgiving.

This equals a 4.17% pay cut.

Mayor Jackson is in talks with nine other groups with the hope of coming to an agreement for additional concessions.
