GAMBIER — Through the Middle Path Partnership, maintenance workers, skilled trades/craftsmen, custodial staff and grounds workers at Kenyon College have teamed with maintenance managers and supervisors to create a business plan designed to save money and improve operational efficiency.
The partnership between the managers and two unions — United Electrical Workers Local 712 and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 2794 — was born as local employees of the college pulled together to create a plan that would be a viable alternative to the maintenance management outsourcing being considered by college administrators. That plan, along with proposals from Aramark and GCA Services were presented to the college administration on Friday.
On Tuesday, the Middle Path Partnership plan was presented to staff and interested faculty members in an open meeting in Olin Auditorium.
