SEANC: Don't layoff yet

SEANC is taking on Erskine Bowles over layoffs.

Dana Cope, executive director of the State Employees Association of N.C., sent a letter today to the president of the University of North Carolina system.

In it, he says he's learned of an e-mail at UNC-Chapel Hill that calls for reducing staff size now in order to save money in the budget starting July 1.

He cites a rule by the State Personnel Commission which says reductions can only happen once there is a shortage of funds.

"There is no shortage of funds yet, as the next budget has yet to be passed and signed into law," Cope writes. "The General Assembly may, in fact, find a way to fund UNC for the next fiscal year in such a way that no redutions in force are required."

Copies of the March 26 letter were sent to Gov. Beverly Perdue and Office of State Personnel head Linda Coleman.

Re: SEANC: Don't layoff yet

Congrats to SEANC for pushing the CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield from running for election to the Board of Governors of UNC. This was a great blow to the conflict of interests insider baseball that pervades our state government and public institutions.

A great day for citizens and consumers.
