OHIO UNIVERSITY President Hugh Sherman

AFSCME Local members are asking the community to tell Ohio University and its administration that while student enrollment has been the highest its ever been at Ohio University, frontline university employees including food service and cleaning staff have been cut by 20 percent. There has been a loss of almost a hundred positions. Ohio University union staff are rallying to restore the staffing levels and rescind the 20 percent cuts. While employees continue to do more with fewer staff members, we are still fighting a pandemic and we need to maintain the standards of cleanliness and sanitation.

Sign our petition and demand OU Leadership rescind the 20 percent cuts and restore staff to a safe level.

Dear President Hugh Sherman and OU administration and Leadership,

Our students and the university community deserve a safe, clean and supportive environment. Frontline employees can only provide that if we have fair and adequate staffing levels.

RESCIND THE 20 percent cuts and restore staff levels so we can continue to provide our vital services safely.
