Source: More layoffs to come at UAMS: UPDATE

Another round of layoffs in works, sources say.
Another round of layoffs in works, sources say.
More staff reductions are to come at the University of Arkansas for Medical
Sciences, including tenured or tenure-track faculty, several sources tell
the Arkansas Times. The information from these sources has proved correct in
the past, so there's reason to believe in the accuracy of what they say.
The new reductions come on top of UAMS' reduction in force of 600 positions
and 258 employees on Monday.
According to one source, as many as 45 such faculty members face layoffs
once UAMS lawyers work out the terms under which they may be let go. The
notifications could come in two-to-four weeks and could be followed by a
further reduction in force in the new fiscal year.
Another source said a faculty meeting at Arkansas Children's Hospital
reduced some staff to tears, and that police escorts out of the building
added insult to injury. Reductions there are said to include pediatric
biostatisticians, grants accountants, and laboratory technicians at the
Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute.
And as with Dean of the College of Medicine Pope Moseley, whose $600,000
contract allows him to spend months abroad in Sweden Denmark, new questions
have arisen about the arrangement that allows Dr. Gareth Morgan, director of
the Myeloma Institute, and his wife colleague Dr. Faith Davies, to work
abroad, in the U.K. Morgan is paid $878,886, according to online data from
the state Department of Finance Administration, and Davies $410,000.
The newly hired chancellor, Dr. Cam Patterson, who will begin work in June,
is being paid $1.2 million in salary and deferred compensation, or about $
300,000 more than former Chancellor Dan Rahn. UAMS has not yet provided
information on the salary breakdown nor how much of that sum comes from
private donations, though it has said a portion is being paid with private
dollars.
We've asked for comment from UAMS and confirmation on the salary figures.
