Deadline for Voluntary Retirement/Separation Program Extended until April 1st

Dear MSCA Librarians and Faculty,

At the request of the state university presidents, the MSCA has agreed to extend the deadline to consider participating in the Voluntary Retirement/Separation Program to April 1, 2021.

If you are considering participating in the program and leaving service from the university, you should follow the directions the university sent out indicate how to notify them or your interest no later than the close of business on Thursday, April 1, 2021.

The notice you give by April 1, 2021 is not binding on you.  You have until April 30, 2021 to withdraw your intent to participate.  If you do not give notice of interest by April 1, 2021, you will not have another opportunity to participate in this program.

I remind you that to you must have 20 years of service to be considered for the program.  If there is a question about your eligibility, I would suggest giving notice by April 1, 2021 and have the university look into your eligibility.

Do not fill out the release (Exhibit A) until after April 30, 2021.

If you have questions please contact Human Resources, your MSCA chapter president or your bargaining committee representative.

CJ O’Donnell
MSCA President
