CHAPEL HILL, NC — Housekeeping issues dominated the University of North Carolina (UNC) Employee Forum on Tuesday, including news that some forum members will meet with Chancellor Holden Thorp in a closed meeting, according to The Daily Tar Heel.
Chairwoman Jackie Overton said the meeting will cover the controversial housekeeping wage-hour policy, among other issues.
"This will be a good opportunity for the chancellor to hear first hand about the issues without outside interference," Overton said.
Housekeepers are prohibited from sitting on the job without permission from their supervisors, a policy that brought controversy after eight housekeepers were disciplined in late July and August for sitting down on the job without notifying their supervisors, the article stated.
James Holman, a housekeeper and forum representative said the meeting will be valuable to changing the policies that are detrimental to housekeeping staff.
