Re: “UA Board meets today on UAMS-CARTI breakup

On today 7JUL15, Carti laid off workers at various locations. I attend class with one of the laid off workers who said she was called into the office, told she was being let go, was given 10 minutes to collect her things, and was escorted from the building to her car! Two of the reasons given for her layoff was that Carti was "in the red" due to the buying of Little Rock Hematology Oncology and due to the building of the new facility on Kanis Road scheduled to open fall 2015.

My laid off friend also said that she and all hourly employees at Carti stopped receiving their bonuses in 2013 due to "budget restraints". All salaried employees still received their bonuses and ground was broken for the new facility.

Some of the laid off workers have over 20 years of service at Carti. is hiring for some of the positions formerly held by the laid off workers and these are now "temporary" positions. I will find a new non profit to donate to after this.
