Gazette Premium Content CSU-Pueblo employees rally for jobs

The Associated Press Published: December 18, 2013

PUEBLO — Several dozen faculty and staff members at Colorado State University-Pueblo are rallying against upcoming layoffs.

A group of them held a campus rally Tuesday to express concerns about the effect of as many as 50 layoffs. They say the layoffs will affect education quality, the local economy and employee morale.

According to KRDO-TV (http://tinyurl.com/nelr5ce ), employees were notified Friday of the pending layoffs.

CSU-Pueblo President Lesley DiMare says she understands the concern, but the university must cut $3.3 million from its budget because of lost revenue from declining enrollment.
