Eastern Illinois University considers more short-term layoffs - SARAH TISINGER, AP

Eastern Illinois University President David Glassman says that while the school is not planning more mass layoffs to cope with the continued lack of a state budget more cost-cutting may be required. That could include short-term layoffs. The Charleston school has been among the hardest hit by continued standoff between Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Democrats who control the General Assembly over state spending. More than 400 EIU employees have lost their jobs. Glassman said in an email to employees and students on Monday that EIU could face a cash crunch in July and August as it waits for tuition revenue to come in for the fall. He said that if more layoffs are needed they would last no more than four weeks. http://wqad.com/2016/06/07/eastern-illinois-university-considers-more-short-term-layoffs/
