MINUTES APPROVAL

D. Turano asks for the approval of the minutes.  Minutes are approved.

INTRODUCTION OF NEW VP OF EMPLOYEE/EMPLOYER RELATIONS & SECRETARY

D. Turano introduces Brian Hayden as the new VP of Employee/Employer Relations. 

D. Turano explains that Miriam Jauregui has decided to step down due to work in her area.  D.T. then introduces Ricky Gonzalez as the new Secretary.

TREASURER’S REPORT

Diana Stanojevich presents the budget report and explains the line items.  She asks the members if there are any questions.  No questions are asked.  The budget report is approved.

GRIEVANCE  REPORT

Luukia Smith states that there are no grievances at the moment, but that we almost had one.  She explains that there was an issue with the new longevity pay scale.  The district wanted to start the pay the year after the employee’s anniversary.  A grievance was avoided.

JANUS VS. AFSCME

L. Smith explains the Janus vs. AFSCME Supreme Court case.  She explains what a “right-to-work state” is.  The term sounds positive, but it is essentially a plan to defund unions.

TIMECLOCK PLUS

Timeclock Plus is explained to the members.  It is a new system to keep track of the days and hours for student and part-time workers.  It will help by tracking this information.  Time clock will also keep track of classified employees’ leave requests.  It will soon be done online through this system.

SUBDIFF TO EXTENDED LEAVE

In November 2017, it was approved to rename sub-differential pay to “Extended Sick Leave.” We, classified employees, have to exhaust all leave (vacation, sick) before we dip into extended sick leave.

ECCE SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE

D. Turano reminds the members that we discussed the ECCE Classified Scholarship Committee, but no one reached out to her.  She encourages the members to reach out if they are interested in the scholarship selection process.

ADJOURNMENT

Meeting adjourned at 9:00 p.m.
