Layoffs on the horizon at NWCC

January 26, 2012

Job cuts now seem all but inevitable at Northwest Community College to help balance its budget. In a notice to its unionized workers, NWCC states employers must give 60 days' notice if they intend to make employee changes affecting a significant number of their workers. Managers and other non-unionized employees at the college have also been told of impending layoffs. The potential for layoffs and other cuts is growing out of a shortfall that could be between $1.6 million and $2 million by the time NWCC closes off its books for the year ending March 31.
