Cambrian cuts 13 support staff positions

April 19, 2012

OPSEU officials are upset after Cambrian College announced Wednesday plans to eliminate 13 support staff jobs. The job losses are even harder to take given what the union calls big pay hikes to some college management, officials say. An OPSEU staff representative says that in some cases, senior administrators' salaries have increased up to 74% over 3 years. "How can you justify laying us off -- telling 13 people that they're getting their surplus notice -- when you have done this and given yourself these raises over three years?" he asks. The news follows last month's vote by Cambrian's board of governors to cut 9 programs, a decision that resulted in 15 academic positions being cut. Sudbury Star | Northern Life
