OS Council Meeting

By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
February 20, 2008

The OS Council plans to install communication boards in 12 locations in dining, hospitality and maintenance zones to better inform constituents on issues being discussed during meetings.

Minutes from the meetings as well as an overview on topical subjects as they arise will be posted on the bulletin boards, providing those workers who don’t have easy access to computers with information that might be of interest to them.

Council representatives will install the communication boards during the spring break.

During the annual retreat earlier this year, OS councilors identified several areas of concern to be addressed this year. Those to be worked on first include finding a better parking solution for critical workers who must come in during curtailed operations; coordinating plans with CIS, Web Solutions, and the HR Office of Professional and Organizational Development to implement some new, creative approaches to providing departments with a variety of computer training needs including Web site maintenance; and reviewing the possibility of a 360 degree process for performance evaluations.

OS representatives will also try to organize brownbag lunches with constituents where question and answer sessions can occur. To launch that idea, on Tuesday, Feb. 26, the council will host an open forum for staff from noon to 3 p.m. in the Salmon Falls Room at Holloway Commons.

Staff members are invited to stop in to meet council representatives, ask questions, offer feedback and voice concerns. Light refreshments will be served.

In other news, Holly Hillsgrove, Lonn Sattler and Slava Bruder were selected to serve on the Presidential Award of Excellence nominating committee.

Sharon Demers from HR reminded the council that information is available at the HR Web site (http://www.unh.edu/hr/Union-Q-and-A-2008.htm ) related to efforts to create a staff union on campus. HR had previously notified employees via email and snail mail that they had been fielding questions related to unionization.

Questions can be emailed to hrinfo@hr.edu or directly to Demers. OS Council members welcome your questions and comments about unionization as well.
