UJIA drops unpaid leave plan for staff

The UJIA has shelved plans to ask staff to take two weeks’ unpaid leave this year in order to cut the charity’s costs.

Staff had been warned of the move at the end of last year.

For an employee on a salary of £25,000, it would have meant the loss of nearly £1,000, equivalent to a four per cent pay cut.

UJIA chief executive Michael Wegier said this week that, although the idea had been floated, “I withdrew it”.
He was looking at cost reductions but added that “fundraising is up on last year.”
