Privatizing Indiana

Seeking to raise money for new academic buildings and programs, Indiana University's board of trustees is exploring outsourcing its "auxiliary-service" units. These units manage printing and food services, the university's bookstores, campus motor pools, and other functions. To prevent job loss and wage cuts among hundreds of long-term university employees, the pro-labor organization Jobs with Justice has joined forces with local and state officials and IU's unions: the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, which represents service and maintenance staff, and the Communications Workers of America, which represents clerical and technical employees. This article reports the protests and oppositions of demonstrators and the group of Hoosiers to the outsourcing of IU's "auxiliary-service" units.
