Lansing State Journal: MSU staff want back pay for COVID-19 wage cuts

Lansing State Journal: MSU staff want back pay for COVID-19 wage cuts. “Michigan State University faculty and staff lost thousands of dollars each in wages due to COVID-related budget cuts, and now they want to be paid back. Non-union faculty and academic staff at MSU saw their salaries cut by 1% to 7% between September 2020 and July 2021. For deans and executive managers, those cuts were between 2% and 10%. The cuts were made as a cost-savings measure as MSU dealt with the financial impacts of COVID-19. Those salaries have since been returned to pre-pandemic levels, but faculty and staff are now calling for back pay.”
