UTMB Rehiring—Why All The Layoffs To Start With?

The University of Texas Medical Branch is now hiring people back after massive layoffs in recent months

I’m glad about this. Though I’m still concerned about the future of UTMB in Galveston.

At the moment though, what I’d really like to know is why all the layoffs to start with? Surely there was some other more transparent way to do this that did not cause so much misery and anxiety for UTMB workers and for the people of Galveston.

  1. they might have had too many to begin with. they might have used this as a tool to get rid of the dogs that worked there as well. you lay off everyone and hire back the ones that work. in the work force its so hard to get rid of people that dont have passion or perform because they have worked there for so long etc… i think if uaw could clean house and hire new blood they would as well. all companies from gm to dennys to aig have people that cant get rid of without it turning into litagation and b.s.

  2. Well…The Univ. of Texas Board of Regents has been messing with UTMB in a number of ways that people at UTMB and in Galveston don’t really understand. I think you might be giving them a bit too much credit to say they have certain idea of what they are doing.
