Community College Forced To Make Pay Cuts And Demotions

Pay cuts and demotions. They're measures taken by one Community College in the east to avoid job cuts.

Craven Community College in New Bern will implement this reorganization plan in July.

The plan calls for about 20 to 25 positions to be rewritten and revised under the Schools President Doctor Katherine Chew.

She said the plan helps to keep the school from cutting jobs altogether. Several employees who spoke to WITN off camera today say they believe their being treated unfairly.

But with enrollment up because of the number of people out of work, Chew says it's important to keep the future of students in mind.

The more than 20 positions being revised include both faculty and administrators.

    With record enrollment at Pitt Community College I really hope that they do not do cuts. We have a record number of students this year and the state has taken all of our excess money. I am hoping that we can all keep our jobs, positions and salaries. The bonus cut, travel, and cut in supplies was enough.

    Doesn't make sense. Enrollment is up, more money coming in, but people being demoted and having pay cut?
