Russell Perry, who was dismissed as associ
ate director of operations for the department
of University housing in mid-April regained
his job Monday. .
Perry was reinstated through the Universi
ty's grievance procedure. He said his reinstate
ment was effective Monday morning following
a meeting with Jody Harpster, acting director
of University housing. He also said that he
would receive back pay from April 20, the day
after his dismissal.
Perry said he received notice of his dismissal
from Harpster on April 18. Harpster had ask
ed him to resign after accusations of miscon
duct, but Perry refused and was dismissed ef
fective 5 p.m. April 19.
The N.C. Landmark published an article in
mid-April which stated that Perry had allowed
a University employee to use a shop planer for
Perry claimed that he did not violate any
University policy and began his appeal to re
gain his position shortly after his dismissal.
The appeals process involves four steps, the
first of which is an appeal to the employee's
immediate supervisor. An employee may then
appeal to the personnel department, then to a
chancellor's grievance committee and finally
to a hearing officer from the State Personnel
Commission who can make'recommendations
to the full commission. The commission then
makes a binding decision.
Perry said he had appealed to Harpster, his
supervisor in the housing department, who
was required to make a decision in 10 working
days. Perry declined to say at which step in the
process he was reinstated.
Harpster could not be reached for comment
Tuesday on the decison. However, The Chapel
Hill Newspaper reported Monday that Harp
ster had confirmed Perry's reinstatement but
would not comment further, citing confiden
tiality in personnel matters required by state
"Since the founding of the University there
has never been an employee fired for loaning
or borrowing equipment," Perry said. He ad

State Personnel Administrative Guide and a
handbook that all employees receive, state

Democratic-controlled House voted 239-186 Tuesday to spend $625
million for development and flight-testing of the MX missile.
The resolution releasing funds voted last year goes to the Senate
where similar approval was expected Wednesday.
Critics said the MX; to be based in underground Minuteman silos,
would be a "sitting duck" for destruction by Soviet missiles. Suporters
said the MX is essential to counter a new generation of Soviet intercon
tinental ballistic missiles which they said would upset the balance of
nuclear power. MX opponents said the fight was far from over.
. Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, the . Senate Finance Committee voted
1 1-5 to eo alone with the administration's rennest to increase the na
tional debt limit to nearly $1.4 trillion.
