Alumni and other supporters of a labor education program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst are concerned about the program's future, The Boston Globe reported. Eve Weinbaum, the director of the program, recently left, saying she was ousted and that budget cuts were imposed while she was on sabbatical last year. Many fear that the program could be eliminated. But the university says the program -- which has had a strong national reputation -- is suffering from enrollment declines and that the institution is trying to improve it. The university says Weinbaum resigned.
