Minutes from Union Executive Committee Meeting

Present – Rick Applin, Charles Cassara, Beth Denisch, Marti Epstein, Rich Grudzinski, Danny Harrington, Jonathan Holland, Jeff Perry, Diane Richardson, Wendy Rolfe, Jackson Schultz, Mike Scott, Will Silvio.  

  1. Wendy made a motion to accept the minutes from the previous meeting as amended and update the website. Danny seconded and the vote was unanimous to accept the minutes.
  2. Mike met with management regarding two faculty members and their positions at the college. There will be further meetings to discuss their situations. We discussed their cases at length, confidentially.
  3. Rick presented a wage comparison by rank, gender, and years of service. If we are going to pursue this, how are we going to handle it? What about a consultant, a third party, not a faculty member to crunch the numbers. There are a lot of variables to look at that can factor into our conclusions. 
  4. Let’s continue this gender discussion in two weeks.
  5. Next week John Eldert, Phil Lima, and Judy Heaton will be coming to discuss benefits.
