In an uncertain budget and operational climate, Berkshire Community College has announced a round of layoffs.

The college made an announcement on Thursday morning to faculty and staff that the cafeteria would remain closed "for the foreseeable future." That decision has resulted in letting go 10 employees, including three full-time food service supervisors.

 

With few students, staff and visitors permitted on campus, keeping the cafeteria open was a challenge to sustain, as was creating work from home opportunities for the employees.

Members of the food service staff could not be immediately reached for comment.
