The School of Engineering just underwent a surprise restructering resulting in four of our members being laid-off and more than a dozen non union staff. Two from the Stanford Center for Professional Development and two others from the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF).
We are currently in the process of investigating these two situations to see if these changes were justified or just a farce in order to bring in cheap labor via a third party contractor.
If that is the case we will file a grievance and get our workers back to work and made whole for any loss in pay and benefits.
We will keep you updated.
