Community supports custodians

March 22, 2011

COOKVILLE, TN — Supporters of in-house custodians have expressed their concerns with outsourcing the custodial staff, according to The Oracle.

Tennessee Tech University (TTU) United Campus Workers are quick to point out the numerous security hazards that come with outsourcing, including the hiring of convicted felons, the article stated.

"One of the requirements in the requests for proposal for outsourcing companies to work with Tech would be that they do background checks on everyone," said Bell.

"If we were to go to outsourcing, the background checks would be much more thorough than they are now with our current employees," Bell added.

Organizers of the rally have started a petition to protest the potential outsourcing of TTU custodians, the article noted.
