Mayo outsourcing of food service jobs looks familiar to some

The pending switch from Sodexo to Morrison Healthcare will transition about 700 local workers in southern Minnesota

September 2, 2016

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is following a familiar script in outsourcing food service jobs, according to an article on the Post-Bulletin website.

The switch from Sodexo to Morrison Healthcare will transition about 700 local workers in southern Minnesota from Mayo's payroll and self-described "exceptional benefits" plan to Morrison's "poverty wages" and lesser benefits, according to Service Employees International Union Healthcare Minnesota.

Former Mayo Clinic transcriptionists can relate to the experiences of the food service workers, the article said.

In late 2013 and early 2014, Mayo outsourced 270 medical transcriptionist positions at its Mayo Clinic Health System facilities in rural Minnesota and Wisconsin to reduce costs by about 40 percent. Transcriptionists remain in Rochester, but they're now hired on a part-time basis.
