Texas A&M to save $92M in privatization push

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M University says it will save $92 million by privatizing nearly 1,000 jobs at campuses statewide.

The Eagle in Bryan reports (http://bit.ly/15SjoSA) about 920 public-sector employees responsible for landscaping, building maintenance and custodial services will move into the private sector and work for a subsidiary of Compass Group North America, based in Charlotte, N.C.

University officials said Wednesday the savings will be realized over 12 years and that presidents of each campus will decide how to allocate those savings. They contend operational costs will be curtailed along with future contract and other expenses.

They say all employees moving into the private sector were guaranteed their jobs. Many workers will transition to the Compass Group by April 1 while the others will in the coming months.
