LSSU, college trim staff - Brian Kelly, Sault Star

Lake Superior State University and Sault College are joining Algoma University in reducing staff numbers. Algoma recently cut nine positions as it prepares for an anticipated drop in enrolment this fall. Lake Superior State University reduced its workforce by five employees, three non-union, two union, earlier this month. No faculty jobs were lost. The job losses in administration and educational support are part of 28 full-time equivalent positions axed in the last year through various factors including retirements, resignations, a voluntary buyout program and not filling vacant jobs. “A handful” of positions have moved from full-time to part-time hours, said Jay Gage, special assistant to LSSU President Tom Pleger. LSSU, with the staff reductions, and other cost-saving measures, plans to eliminate a $2-million structural deficit by the 2016-2017 school year, said Gage.
