Wednesday night in City Hall to
the "Sycor Crisis Committee."

COMPUTER corporation, Ann
s largest private employer with
nployees, announced earlier this
that it would lay off 600 workers
next six months. Northern
)m System Corp. (NTSC), of
Sycor is a subsidiary, plans to
-t the Ann Arbor manufacturing
into a "prototype production
y," eliminating the need for
acturing workers.
r most important goal is to
le jobs to these people who will be

Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Ar-

have a lot of resources available."
"We will coordinate state and local
services to hook up people with jobs,"
said Bullard. "We hope to provide job
training and relocation."
ANN ARBOR Mayor Louis Belcher
promised that the city would compile a
master list of laid off Sycor employees
to give them an opportunity to fill job
vacancies in Ann Arbor.
"We hope to have several new com-
panies coming to Ann. Arbor," said
Belcher. "We'll use the Economic
Development Commission to see that
the new companies get a shot at people
displaced at Sycor." ¢
Belcher also declared that the city's
Comprehensive Employment Training
Act office (CETA) can retrain people to
fit skills needed in Ann Arbor.
THE MICHIGAN Employment
Security Commission, Department of
Social Services, labor unions and the
Washtenaw County United Way also
pleldged to help workers find jobs or
give them assistance while they are
searching.
Although a number of officials and
employees stressed the importance of
participation by the management of
NTSC, no company representatives

were present. Local NTSC officials
yesterday declined to comment on
whether the company would get in-
volved with the group.
Belcher also said that he had
problems communicating with NTSC.
Describing his negotiations with com-
pany officials, the mayor said, "You
might as well be talking to a wall."
FRED VEIGEL of the Huron Valley
Central Labor Council drew applause
from the Sycor employees-in the crowd
when he urged the city to take punitive
action against NT§C. He said the com-
pany "was given a tax break with the
understanding that employment would
increase. That tax break could be
rescinded retroactively if they're not
living up to their obligations."
But Chuck Hasen of the Michigan
Department of Commerce, said the city
should make the company aware of fur-
ther tax breaks availble in Ann Arbor.
"Because of the growth Northern
Telecom has had over the years, they
may give serious consideration to ex-
panding here in the future," he said.
A total of 343,207 academic degrees
was awarded by the University bet-
ween 1845 and 1978.
