Louisville Archdiocese Freezing Salaries

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Officials with Louisville's Catholic Archdiocese say about 3,000 employees will have their wages frozen in an effort to save money and minimize tuition increases at its schools.

The one-year wage freeze, which is scheduled to begin July 1 with the next fiscal year, will apply to all employees, including priests, teachers, clerical staff and others who work throughout the Roman Catholic archdiocese, which covers 24 counties and has about 200,000 members.

Archdiocese chancellor and chief administrator Brian Reynolds told The Courier-Journal on Wednesday that the freeze would save the archdiocese about $2 million.

The move by the Archdiocese comes on the heels of seminaries in Lexington and Louisville enacting similar cutbacks.
