The University of New Hampshire may eliminate more than 200 jobs if lawmakers go ahead with proposed budget cuts, a university official said Tuesday.
Dick Cannon, the university’s vice president for finance, said if the state Senate goes along with the House plan to reduce funding for UNH by $30 million, the university may need to cut 7 percent of its workforce through layoffs, early retirement deals and leaving vacancies unfilled.
The union, which represents 633 faculty members, has proposed a 12.5 percent pay increase over three years. UNH proposed a 6.5 percent increase over the same period, while the fact-finder recommended 8.75 percent.
