The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the Cincinnati Public School District is eliminating 145 teaching positions and thirty additional staff positions, all through attrition.  The Enquirer cites anticipated cuts in state funding in education as part of the reason.  Nearby Princeton School District has already announced a layoff of 100.  In a separate story, the Northwest School District in Hamilton County announced the elimination of 51 positions, 18 of which are teachers who will be laid off.

In today’s Dayton Daily News, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections announced the elimination of 50 positions, all through attrition, at the Dayton Correctional Institution as it is transformed into an all-female facility.  That’s roughly 1/6th of the positions presently employed there.

Meanwhile, the Akron Beacon Journal is reporting that the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) plans to eliminate 500 positions over the biennium, which works out to be roughly 9% of its current staff.

”We’ll try to do it in a way that doesn’t require layoffs,” Biehl said at a special Transportation Day at Root Candles.

That’s nearly 800 job positions announced as being eliminated as a result of John Kasich’s “Jobs Budget” in one day’s worth of Ohio newspapers.

    Not surprised since radical R’s don’t believe in job creation except for themselves and their friends. We are on our own.

    Odot was full of rumors today– (maybe not all are rumors) yes we expected layoffs –there are no job creations except for pals and buds.
    It was told today Odot also that the 12 districts will be combined to 9 districts– how does this save money you ask –well we dont know –still be all the same people just redrawn.One thing is for sure that the big boys wont be cut — if cuts are made it will the little guys a t the bottom.Was also told that a whole agency( dept) will close ( the Regions– aka real estate) Privatize maybe ??
    Rumors swirled that those of us active in the union and have petitions will be targeted if SB5 fails at the polls to be laid off first– and people signing the petitions have been told the same thing– petitions will be checked for your name and then you are history.So now people are scared to sign. Lets all be big bullies and threaten these folk so we can win!!
    I was told not to post in here anymore that people know who I am and I will be “fired” for some reason. All I can say is — go ahead and I will see you in litigation, with every attorney I can find. Its time this scare tactic stuff was stopped.
    Looks like the Governor is trying to get rid of all the workers before November. I dont think thats a smart move. Do you ?

    Will Kasich will layoff all is consultant buddies who are getting paid $200 hr in odot doing nothing. Why ODOT people can do the job, It is another way of paying back to people who donated the money .
