Archdiocese of Louisville Freezes Wages to Ward Off Tuition Hikes
About 3,000 employees of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville, Ky., will have their wages frozen in an effort to save money and minimize tuition increases at its schools, church officials said last week.
The one-year freeze, scheduled to begin July 1 with the next fiscal year, will apply to all employees, including priests, grade school teachers, clerical-staff members, and others who work throughout the archdiocese, which covers 24 counties and has about 200,000 members.
Brian Reynolds, the chancellor and chief administrator of the archdiocese, said the freeze would save about $2 million.
The cuts by the Louisville Archdiocese will affect teachers in the system's 39 grade schools, which make up about half the affected employees.
The freeze does not apply to the archdiocese's nine high schools, which set their own salaries and tuition, Mr. Reynolds said.
