Recently, the upper management was tasked with reorganization of a major division on campus related to facilities services. In the re-org, management felt it was important to do away with the “moving crew”, so they let them all go. Days later, the El Presidente of the university needed some office equipment moved to another location and called on the moving crew. The president was told that there is no longer a moving crew, they had all been part of the RIF (reduction-in-force), he’d have to find another way to get the stuff moved. It was going to have to be moved with existing personnel or be outsourced to a local moving company.
