Statement from Chancellor Hyman on Sick Pay Policy

1/27/2012 1:00 PM

"I worked with the Board of Trustees to end City Colleges of Chicago's sick payout policy in November 2011 because the practice squandered taxpayer dollars that should be used in the classroom. The policy change applied only to non-union employees. The benefit remains a contractual obligation with our unions, which make up 80 percent of our workforce. We plan to work with our unions to bring all employees' benefits more in line with our new policy. I ordered a comprehensive review of employee benefits in 2010 and the termination of the sick payout policy in late 2011 was the first step in benefits reform that will continue over the next few months."
