GAMBIER — Public feedback, all in opposition of a proposed outsourcing, was heard from Kenyon College faculty, staff and students Wednesday evening in a panel meeting at Higley Auditorium. It was the eighth meeting of the Maintenance Management Advisory Panel, formed to study the maintenance needs of Kenyon College and give recommendations to the college administration.
This was the first panel meeting made available to the public which allowed for much discussion on the controversial topic.
Leading the discussion at the forum was panel chairman Larry James, who announced that on Sept. 27, the panel voted to recommend that members of the college’s labor unions “remain Kenyon employees for the foreseeable future.” A letter sent to the administration stated, “The MMAP has recommended that Local 712 — United Radio Machine Workers of America and The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local Lodge No. 2749 not be outsourced.” Both of these contracts expire in 2014.
