Tom Green, director, Energy and
KU SCUPA’s PSEA representative, Marc Kornfeld was in an automobile accident on
Saturday and passed away on Sunday from complications. SCUPA was his brainchild
and he negotiated their first contract in the early eighties. His forte was
trying to bring parties together to talk through their differences. Marc was
London School of Economics graduate as well as a Rhodes Scholar, he was
brilliant at the negotiations table with total mastery of all figures and points
that were being discussed. Marc has worked with many at KU and PASSHE over the
past decades in Labor Relations. He never lost sight of the fact that people and
families were most important above all else. He was 71 years young and recently
celebrated 41 years with PSEA. There will be a memorial service in about three
weeks and more information will be provided upon request.
