It is now being broken down to it’s own meeting. AFSCME has asked that Deb Burger be allowed to attend these with Sam Arneson as the backup.

AFSCME Agenda Items
• Did the PT Night LPN position get filled?
o This position was first posted internally with no bidders. It was then posted on the web and they had applicants- unfortunately none of these applicants cared to interview. It is currently posted on the web again and the state recruiter is also working on filling the position.

1. The Man down system is currently not working. (Safety Issue)
• The man down system is now working- it was tested today and is tested on a daily basis. There is one remote that is not working and will be replaced. Management looked into replacing this system but ran into contractual obligations. If the system is replaced in the future, a system other than Simplex will be looked at.

• Follow up Discussion: How does everyone feel the inversing situation has been going these last 3 months
o Inversing has been much better for both staff and management.
o From 6/23/10-present there has been only 13.75 hours of mandatory inverse hours. Staff has been working together to cover this and management appreciates this.

• Follow up: Has consistency returned to how RN’s are offering OT? (i.e. Last meeting there were concerns that some were offering it based on a sun-sat work week and some from a Wed-Tue. Work week.)
