Steps announced on staff issues

In response to issues raised by the Workers' Rights Organizing Committee, University officials have advanced two measures concerning casual workers and wage levels.
Richard Spies, vice president for finance and administration, explained the measures in a statement issued Wednesday.
First, the University will seek to move a significant number of casual workers to benefits-eligible term appointments or regular staff positions. Second, administrators have asked the Priorities Committee to examine the University's compensation program, including the wage levels of lower-paid staff members, and to make at least initial recommendations by the end of April.
