The University of California is imposing a pay freeze for its non-unionized employees due to the financial losses the COVID-19 outbreak has caused. In a statement, UC officials have agreed to a system-wide freeze on salaries for “policy covered staff employees” for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. President Janet Napolitano and the system’s 10 chancellors are also taking a 10% pay cut. UC estimates financial losses of over $1 billion from mid-March through April. Those losses are expected to increase in the months ahead.
