The University of Illinois’ Urbana campus is making plans for possible layoffs, as a result of the budget stalemate.
In a memo obtained by Illinois Public Media, Associate Provost for Human Resources Elyne Cole indicates that some jobs – including some in Civil Service --- could be cut, effective at the start of the fall semester. A university spokesperson couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
AFSCME Local 3700 President Ann Zettervall says she’s seen the memo, which was sent Monday to some campus personnel, including some who are covered by union contracts. She says she’s just getting the word out to her members, who are mostly clerical employees.
