Union officials uneasy about USF budget cuts listen05/29/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
In recent weeks weâ€™ve reported on the mandated budget cuts at some of Floridaâ€™s top Universities, particularly at USF and USF- St. Pete.
Last week, USF President Judy Genshaft said there would be 450 positions cut, but only 70 people or so would actually lose their jobs because those other positions hadnâ€™t been filled.
Bill McClellan, president of Local 3342 AFSCME, told WMNF that much of his rank and file are working under the fear that they too may not have much job security at USF.
McClellan says he will be meeting with USF's general counsel next week in hopes that they can work out the problems heâ€™s described before they go to the grievance process.
