6. Items from the membership: Nursing home supervisors have been taking later shifts to have more “face time” with staff. Rumors are that this is to get rid of the 10 hour shifts from NOC’s.   Implications and issues regarding CBHH moving locations will be monitored and there is no more information at this time but will be keeping an eye on it.

7. Officer Reports Presidents Report:

VP-Matt Stenger: Discussion with HR about overtime and how you cannot rescind it after its accepted which may result in staff calling in sick.  This is not contractual and is considered a scheduled shift.  But  do not have to pay sick time. Management can cancel the overtime on their end due to discontinued one to ones, etc.  Days cannot work more than 24 in 48.  Overnights 26 in 36.  NOC’s doesn’t want to put pressure on day shift. Management argues that NOCs are working 4 days so that is their perk. Therefore only one staff vacation per location.  If staff rescinds that day, schedulers are not allowing someone else to take it.  They are waiting until only 2 weeks before to post.

VP- Molly Kennedy: 1st staff assault in a long time at MSOP. Management offered EAP and came in to have a debrief.  The assaulted staff came back in to do report etc. Injury packets are being used on a trial basis until kinks are worked out.
