Layoffs at the UTHSC

Layoffs began at the UT Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis last Wednesday, August 11, 2010.  The UTHSC has chosen not to use stimulus funds to save jobs and has instead chosen this very negative path.

Check out union leader Michelle Burrell, who is one of the terminated employees, speak out about this injustice and what UCW's demands are for rectification in the following video.  Additionally, below the video is a letter sent from the union to UT President Jan Simek and UTHSC Chancellor Steve Schwab.
