SEIU Local 560 President Chris Peck, who represents more than 500 custodial, food preparation and other service-job workers on the Dartmouth campus, said some union members took the early retirement package, but that the college has already been advertising for their replacements, including a troubleshooter and power plant operator.Home Search News Business Cops-Fires-Courts Education Health Care Politics Local Government Nation-World Dartmouth College Obituaries Place an Obituary Opinion Columns Editorials Letters to the Editor Sports College Dartmouth High School Outdoors & Recreation Pro Sports Upper Valley Nighthawks Features Arts, Entertainment, Theater Books, TV, Movies Cooking & Dining Home-Garden Science Essays Multimedia Photo Blog Photo Reprints Video Things to Do Valley Calendar Entertainment Highlights Art Notes Submit an Event Listings Volunteer Jobs Support Groups Food Shelves Museums Services for Seniors Kids Activities Meditation Groups Announcements Births Weddings Engagements Submit Special Sections Enterprise Valley Parents Other Contact Newsroom Advertising Classifieds Subscriptions & Delivery Customer Service 603-298-8711 [email protected]
