University of Windsor to outsource more custodial jobs
The University of Windsor is contracting out janitorial duties at six of its buildings, says the union that represents the hourly employees who do the work.
The change takes effect next Monday, CUPE Local 1001 says.
John Coleman, the school’s director of public affairs and communications said no one would lose their jobs as a result of the decision.
“The (janitors) are going to be involved in other areas of campus,” Coleman said. “It’s going back to the budget and the demand for custodial services. The university is looking towards enhancing services for all students and staff.”
“The important thing to remember is no one is going to be losing their jobs,” he said. “We’re trying to use the budget we have as effectively as possible and to use staff as effectively as possible.”
Jeff Martin, the president of CUPE Local 1001, said he was told the university’s decision was the result of absenteeism from some employees, but Coleman said he wasn’t aware of that.
The union says the move affects work at Dillon Hall, Clark Residence, Alumni Hall, the Medical Education Building and the Toldo GLIER and ELIP buildings.

OUWCC- What we do
The Ontario University Workers Coordinating Committee is a voluntary association representing more than 30,000 members working in the university sector. We work in a wide range of academic and support roles, including security, parking, skilled trades, clerical and administrative positions, caretaking, food services, groundskeeping, research, technical and library workers, sessional instructors, teaching assistants and post-doctoral students.
Most work directly for the province’s universities, although some work for contractors on campuses.
OUWCC coordinates university bargaining and province-wide political action on university issues, and facilitates information-sharing between locals. We host an annual spring conference, where we democratically determine our action plan.
