Minutes: Accepted as read.

Raise for Chelsea: Board discussed giving Chelsea a raise. The board has been impressed with her work. Gov. Mangan motioned to give her a $5/hr raise, and Gov. Bradley seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.

CREA Centennial Event Discussion: A CREA member talked to the board about whether CREA would be interested in hosting a centennial event that could include past and present employees. There is a feeling among some in CRS that former-CRS employees have not been truly included in the centennial events. The member noted that a person who has worked at CRS for 2 years will be invited to the “gala” while someone who retired after 35 years will not be. Next step: discussion at the next meeting if this is something the board wants to do.

CBA: Had a 3 day session with the fact finder. Negotiated changes to rights to reopen; grievances; promotion; performance/WIG denials; flexible work schedules; offsite work. Another day will have to be scheduled to finish the last remaining issue, official time.  Nothing has been finalized yet. Still have a few things to work out and then bargaining unit has to vote.

Meeting adjourned at 1:10.
