Are you the only person this is affecting?  If so, I would talk directly to your supervisor and ask what’s up.

@anybeebutme:  Do they think you’re not coming back after the baby is born? That is the ONLY thing I can think of!

Universities are cutting benefits across the board. Free meals every day is a pretty cushy benefit – as is a cell phone – i’m not surprised they were cut. Benefits change for everyone over time – regardless of offer letter.

I would look at your actual duties and your relationship with people there. Are you getting marginalized in your actual office work/duties? If not, and it’s just benefits, it’s a budget thing, not a marginalization thing.

If it’s just you, then something’s fishy. But seriously where do you work? I work at a university and honestly, getting dental is the best perk. No free access to the campus gym. No free food. No cell phone. 

ETA: Just saw your update. I know departments have cards for doing things with students, but not on the daily!

@anybeebutme:  I work at a university and WOULD love meal benefits. But regardless, if it WAS a part of your original compensation, and now isn’t – I think you deserve a better explanation. If I were you I would speak directly with HR and find out why your benefits were cut and not other peoples. Also, do you fall under the person who now has 100 meals? How come he didn’t invite you out with them?
