UCSDMC cuts $24M - without furloughs

In confirmation that UC's medical Centers will be spared employee furloughs, KPBS reports today that UCSD Medical Center implemented $24 in savings without furloughs or other salary cuts. The savings were achieved
by limiting overtime and not filling vacant positions ... many travel expenses [have been eliminated], and there have been some layoffs.
The layoffs are obviously bad news, but a great number of units across UC have had to deal with furlough and take the layoffs. More in general, this is another sign of the white-glove treatment received by revenue-generating units at UC (and also an implementation of UCOP's divide et impera policy).
