Western Illinois University plans to lay off more than 100 employees - KATRINA LAMANSKY, WQAD

More than 100 employees at Western Illinois University were expected to be laid off despite the recent fractional funding approved by the Illinois General Assembly. A memo that went out to faculty and staff indicated that 110 non-instructional employees were being laid off, according to a spokesperson with the Illinois Federation of Teachers. The memo told workers that those being included in the layoffs were notified during the week of April 18, 2016. In the letter to employees, President Thomas said despite “drastic reductions to spending” the layoffs were “necessary to protect the university’s cash resources,” according to a report by the Herald Whig.
