Surplus Promise Wins Sodexo RI School Contract

Sodexo has won the contract to operate the food services in the Cranston, RI, school district, reports the Providence Journal. The company is guaranteeing a surplus, with the size depending on whether the workforce remains unionized. The union contract for 21 full-time employees expired at the end of June and is currently in arbitration with the district. There are also some 70 non-unionized part-time employees. Cranston's dining operations has a deficit of nearly $800,000, but Sodexo projects a surplus of between $179,000 and $434,000 depending on whether the union workers are retained.
