Statement on IU Layoffs

Indiana University recently made public its plan to dismiss 50 hourly workers from custodial and maintenance jobs in the Bloomington physical plant department. The University will then force these workers to re-apply for their jobs through a temporary agency, Manpower, located in Columbus, Indiana. This move comes in the wake of restrictions on the number of hours worked by part-time staff and support workers, as well as massive lay-offs in the affiliated IU Health system.
