University to drop night shift

July 19, 2011

COLUMBIA, MO — Beginning in December, custodians working the night shift at the University of Missouri will become part of the day shift, according to The Columbia Daily Tribune.

The decision to essentially rid the campus of nighttime custodial employees will result in pay cuts for those being moved to the day, but also in huge savings for the custodial department, the article stated.

According to the article, the shift from night to day will save jobs, as the other option the university was considering was cutting staff in order to decrease budget gaps.

The move will see the 60 custodians who currently work the 4 p.m. to midnight shift joining nearly 85 of their counterparts on the 4 a.m. to noon shift, the article noted.

The realignment is expected to save the department nearly $100,000, the article added.
