IP Pilot: President Grasso brought the matter to the floor. Vice President Susan Thaul provided an overview of meetings that CRS management held last week: (1) a meeting with CREA officers on Wednesday, January 20, and (2) meetings with the KSG sections. The CREA officers indicated they would gather more information from CRS colleagues and submit proposals for bargaining.

Meeting with Director: The President of CREA met with the Director of CRS. They discussed new positions, and why CRS- unlike the rest of the LOC- did not get a funding increase in the appropriations act. The Director will start having office hours again.

 Grievance on lack of notification: This has been resolved.

KSG Forum: It is scheduled for January 27th. With all the changes we need to encourage people to attend the meeting.

Take our Children to Work Day: The organizers asked for a $200 donation. We had already budgeted for this.

CREA Alumni: There are certain people who have retired but still donate to CREA. Former President and retiree Jack Moteff is going to work on an idea for what we should do for such people.

Minutes: Approved minutes for December 16th.

“Updated” PD for certain KSG Positions/KSG-DSP-FDT Pilot: Waiting to hear on our requests to bargain on each issue.

Integrated Support Services (ISS) Meeting: With new director will occur January 14, 2016.

Telework: CREA needs decide soon if we want reopen the telework agreement. The telework committee is scheduled to present a proposal regarding the decision on bargaining to the Board on January 11th.

Credit Hours: 2 years after the contract was signed (Oct. 2016) have opportunity to reopen the agreement on credit hours.

Transit Subsidy Increase: Has not been implemented yet for the LOC because of the contractor responsible for the SmartTrip cards.  Should be completed by end of February/beginning of March, and CREA needs to find out whether it will be retroactive.

Centralization in CRS: Why isn’t there a centralized place in CRS to find information about policies (e.g., promotions, review process)?

Discussion: Discussed the review process, how it differs among divisions, and other review issues (e.g., one division stopping the work of another division).
