Delgado to lay off 46 employees next month
NEW ORLEANS- About 10 percent of Delgado Community College's 465 employees will be laid off at the end of next month.
Chancellor Monty Sullivan said Tuesday the layoffs are a consequence of the school's $13 million deficit and declining enrollment. Sullivan says no teachers will lose their jobs in this action.
College spokeswoman Carol Gniady said the 46 people who will lose their jobs are classified and unclassified employees, categories that include secretaries, clerks, bookkeepers and maintenance personnel.
Gniady said notices went out Monday because employees must be told 30 days in advance.
