Employees shouldn’t have to make up the two hours


I write in response to the forced shortened workday Oct. 22 to accommodate the TV coverage of the Florida State football game.

Coming hard on the heels of UNC-system President (Erskine) Bowles’ statement that The (Raleigh) News & Observer coverage of the extensive administrative expansion of many UNC-system schools was an embarrassment, UNC-Chapel Hill is forcing employees to reschedule two hours of their time to accommodate football game traffic!

If the UNC administration wants football coverage to be a priority, they can give their employees the two hours off, not make them make it up!
