From the Glendale News-Press:

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Several cost saving measures that may contribute to lowering a $750,000 budget deficit at Glendale Community College were approved by the Board of Trustees on Tuesday.

Under the proposal that must still be ratified by the classified employees union, more than 350 college employees would work four 10-hour days, which will allow certain buildings to close Fridays during the college’s six-week winter intersession.

Under the proposal, classified staff who work in financial aid, student services and elsewhere across the campus would work four 10-hour days instead of five eight-hour days, pending a ratification by the union membership.

“We appreciate the flexibility of [the union],” trustee Ann Ransford said. “It sounds wonderful, but 10 hours a day is difficult.”
