Further discussion of how sick leave absenteeism may effect merit pay. It works both negatively to the employee using the leave and positively to the employee(s) who pick up the slack. Recommend fully documenting all instances in which you have had to take on extra duties in relation to someone’s absence.
Call for articles of interest for the Univeristy Support Staff (USS) Newsletter. (e.g. perhaps write about our recent general meeting) Staff interested in writing an article for the newsletter can send submissions to Kathy Stiers firstname.lastname@example.org
Asked again about the issue brought up at the USS Update Open Meeting regarding F&O and Housekeeping having access to computers, getting training to use computers, and worktime to do so. There is a workgroup still working on this issue with both Department and University administrations.
Debrief/Discuss General Meeting:
o Evaluations update (as all evaluations will be in process from Jan- Mar)
o Potential for Staff Paraprofessional Workshop (as in Auburn).
Discussion of Minutes (webposted/confidentiality)
Addressed concerns regarding how KULSS-Exec discussion of public service was recorded in the Aug. 25th minutes and whether these issues were relevant to KULSS business. The minutes and their web version have been edited accordingly.
Discussion of recording minutes while Angie is on maternity leave
Jill will record minutes for KULSS-Exec Meetings on Oct 6, Oct 20, Nov 3. Angie will return and resume duties for Nov 17th Meeting.
Agenda Items for Stella and Donna, Wed Sep 28th
o fiscal vs. calendar year
o annual vs. bi-weekly (why the total salary was not given to indicate that the dollar amount was added to annual salary)
