Yes, the employees are better or worse off. How do you answer an either/or question with yes or no? Edit much ABC17? If working conditions at MU are so bad, employees should find another job, there are lots out there.

Losing 10 days for something that should have already been included in benefits is nuts. Only helps those planning to have a family. Also the short term disability is only 60% of pay which for most is not enough. Cutting benefits without pay increases for 2 years. Not a good look.

They are also capping the pay out to 10 days total of your PTO. What about folks that have been working here for many years and have a lot of banked vacation. Doesn't seem right. There will be a lot of people retiring or leaving before this goes into effect

Trading 10 paid days off for benefits that many won't ever use is in no way an improvement.

I'm unsure, possibly Benjamin Franklin, said that once we begin giving up our liberties in the name of safety is the day democracy begins to die. Okay, so the words aren't 100% and I'm unsure who is "quoted",but we are headed in that direction. Im notcomfortable with camera etc4 poss future threat

I am more worried about being tracked and spied on by my cell phone. Save some of your COVID masks, they are worthless at preventing COVID but might help protect you against facial recognition surveillance at the upcoming anti-gov protests. Leave your phone at home when going to protests.

Because we need it to assist with catching the criminals to keep our community safer. Witnesses are afraid to come forward, and the police are short handed.

The govt has facial recognition of all the domestic terrorists in Portland Or. but won't prosecute them, but will go after innocent mothers at school board meetings. Go figure, you may be the next one arrested. Your own words from three months ago. "Privacy concerns and government over reach!" LGB
