UC Fat Cats’ Pension Demands: REJECTED

Posted By Jill Cowan On Jan 6, 2011 @ 4:19 pm In News | Comments Disabled

Guess a few dozen somebodies let their spoons get a little too big, know what we mean? No? Well, basically, those (self-described) “craven scum [1]” UC executives — the ones who thought that NOW would be a good time [2] to dredge up some unimplemented pension increases based on ASUC-esque technicalities — have been common sensibly shot down. Officially, this time. Sort of.

At least, as of Tuesday [3], we know that the UC Board of Regents Chair Russell Gould and UC President Mark Yudof [4]jointly intend to formally put the issue to bed … to the best of their abilities … at the regents’ next meeting. They’ll get there soon enough.

The important thing to take from this is that top UC brass agree with what anyone without their head stuck up their you-know-what is thinking — “WTF, mates?” Oh, and they’re prepared to fight it out in court:

In response to the executives’ threat to sue, Yudof and Gould’s statement also unveiled that months ago the regents had “retained counsel to assist the University in the event this position should need to be defended in the courts.”

Maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves when we say this, but we’ll throw it out there anyway: UC Board of Regents, get ready to meet your Moghtader(s) [5].  As the ancient proverb says, “With each new year, a new ridiculous and unnecessary controversy.” Right? Happy new year, everybody!
