Michigan AFL-CIO Supports CMU Employees, Opposes Job Cuts

LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement today to support campus employees at Central Michigan University, and oppose proposed job cuts:

“Laying off employees at CMU is a bad idea,” said Ron Bieber, president of the Michigan AFL-CIO. “Professors, instructors, faculty members, custodians, skilled trades, grounds and warehouse workers, electricians, HVAC and powerhouse workers are the ones who make CMU happen. Laying off workers and outsourcing these vital jobs would be bad for students, bad for faculty, and bad for the entire campus. It’s time for CMU to get serious about controlling spending and come up with real solutions to cut the deficit without cutting jobs that benefit the whole community.”
