EIU Looks at Temporary Layoffs During Budget Battle
Eastern Illinois University President David Glassman says that while the school is not planning more mass layoffs to cope with the continued lack of a state budget more cost-cutting may be required. That could include short-term layoffs. EIU has been among the hardest hit by continued standoff between Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Democrats who control the General Assembly over state spending. More than 400 EIU employees have lost their jobs.
