May 26 (Reuters) - Steelcase Inc said on Tuesday that it recalled most of its manufacturing employees globally who were furloughed due to restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In the U.S., the company has eased the pay and hour reductions for most of its salaried employees from 50% to 20%," Steelcase said.
The company also eased reductions in base pay for its chief executive officer from a $1 annual salary to a 50% base pay reduction and for its other executives to 20% cut from 60%.
