Custodians, maintenance workers believe CMU admins could privatize workforce in the name of budget adjustments - Ben Solis, CM Life

Some custodians and maintenance staff employees have concerns about layoffs and outsourcing, according to the president and other members of the union that represents them. As Central Michigan University administrators grapple with a two-year $20 million budget deficit, service, maintenance and custodial employees on campus believe both situations are likely, said Karen Witer, president of AFSCME Local #1568 and a custodian at CMU. President George Ross said in March that the deficit is almost “certain” to produce layoffs by the end of this semester. Those cuts to staff and base-budgets are expected to be announced in May.
