President’s Report –
1) President Mrizek reported that the two grievances regarding moving employees between jobs instead of contract workers and using annuitants in violation of the intent of PEPRA will be moving to arbitration. The County has denied them and continues to use these methods to avoid hiring employees.

2) The Board asked Dee to look at filing an Unfair Labor Practice with PERB on the matter.

3) The Board will meet with Eric Stern, Executive Director of SCERS, on 11/27 to discuss ETTI’s concerns.

4) Labor Relations withdrew proposed changes to process in BPI as there has been no meet and confer on the changes.

5) Dates were selected to meet with Labor Relations regarding the Engineering Technician reopener. Randy will send documents for review by the Board prior to the meetings on 12/11 and 12/18.

6) The review of the draft Memorandum of Understanding has been completed and will be put up on the County website.

7) The annual holiday meeting is being scheduled and the Board will be notified of the date.

8) It is time to seriously look at succession planning as Tom will be retiring in January 2020 at the latest. He is working to ensure that Board members are prepared to take his place.

Action Items: None

1) Dee reported that the XXX termination was settled with a voluntary resignation and is signed.

2) The XXX issue regarding Workers Compensation was resolved and the surgery was covered by them but since the injury is over 5 years old there is no temporary disability so he was referred to SDI.

3) XXX is planning to retire due to his injuries and the inability to accommodate his medical restrictions.

4) The grievance regarding non-payment of cash-back to XXX is moving forward. His insurance status has been the same for over a decade but they did not enroll him in insurance or pay the cash-back for him.

Correspondence: None

Old Business: None

New Business: None

Meeting Adjourned – 1:10 PM
