Labor Union Relations and Other Issues Concerning Operation of the Laundry, Chicago
Chancellor Stukel briefed the board members on the status of the laundry operation at the Chicago campus. The chancellor's recommendation was that the laundry be closed and the employees placed in other positions. The cognizant union has objected to this, thus, there was concern about the employment security of the employees and the way in which the service would be contracted in the future. Inefficiency and cost of operation of the laundry were cited as reasons for recommending its closing. Dr. Stukel explained the savings to be realized if the laundry was closed and the work contracted out to an independent laundry service. He also explained how the employees would be moved to new jobs on the campus or retire in some cases. The board expressed some concern about the fact that the low bidder for the service to be provided was an out-of-State firm.
Special Executive Session
President Ikenberry met with the members of the board, Dr. Bazzani, and Dr. Thompson, to present his intent to change Chancellor James Stukel's salary for the balance of the contract year, beginning July 1, 1993, to be comparable with that of Dr. Michael Aiken, chancellor designate at Urbana. The president explained his intent to change Chancellor Stukel's salary to $150,000. Dr. Aiken will be paid $155,000 beginning July 1, 1993; however, part of this is to provide for a transition from his salary at the University of Pennsylvania. Equity with salaries paid other comparable universities' campus chief administrators was also a consideration. By consensus, the trustees agreed that this was appropriate and that they understood the need to make this adjustment on the president's part.
EXECUTIVE SESSION ADJOURNED
