Office Help: John Mickey got a new job. Congratulations! Unfortunately, that means CREA will need to hire a new office assistant/digitization project person.

Episodic Offsite Work: There was another weather event and there was confusion about episodic offsite work. There appears to be a lack of information related to when offsite is available. There is inconsistency about who is offered and granted offsite work for weather. CRS management is supposed to notify everyone when it is available. CREA plans to discuss this issue with CRS management.

Work-Life Guide on Insider: There was a work-life guide posted on the Insider.

Senior Level Analyst/Lawyers: A new agreement is being worked on. There are some new issues.

Washington Metro Council: The head of the Council, Joss Williams, is retiring. He has been the head for 40 years, and started at the LOC. He is still a member of Local 2277. Gov. Stouffer moved that CREA set aside $84 in the budget to buy an ad with the other unions to congratulate Mr. Williams. Gov. Hardy Vincent seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.

Proposed IP Pilot: Discussed CREA plans to bargain the impact, implementation, and relocations associated with the proposed pilot.
