The Department of Personnel Administration just told The State Worker that Furlough Friday this week will happen with the same rules that governed the Feb. 6 furlough.
In other words, unless you're on a self-directed furlough for different day, don't show up to work on Friday. The instructions include the 95,000 workers covered by the tentative agreement struck last week by SEIU Local 1000.
The reason SEIU members are going to take the day off with everyone else is that Local 1000 still has to ratify its contract and the Legislature hasn't approved it, DPA spokeswoman Lynelle Jolley told us.
If you were off Feb. 6, you'll be off again this Friday.
