January layoffs delayed at LSU hospitals

The Advocate, December 6, 2012
Most of the 1,500 state employee layoffs scheduled for Jan. 21 at LSU hospitals across south Louisiana have been put on hold. LSU officials said Tuesday they will not proceed to Civil Service approval of plans as negotiations continue with private partners for operations of the seven hospitals under LSU's Health Care Services Division. "Since those discussions are ongoing and the partners have indicated a desire to maintain as many services as possible pending agreements that would continue, and possibly expand, such services into the future LSU HCSD has delayed much of the Civil Service layoff proposals from consideration by the state Civil Service Commission," LSU System Executive Vice President Frank Opelka wrote in an email update to legislators.
