b. Unanimous approval for minutes.

1. Grievances.

a. New Castle Youth Development Center.

1. The grievance was withdrawn with subject that the contract

security still kept on to work after the state security officers were eliminated. Due to the

facility being reposted for sale and the fact that there is no longer any career potential there.

also, the primary reason they kept the contract security was due to the media attention at

the site.

b. There are currently 4 grievances in process concerning “failure to

follow policy.”

2. There have been conversations with insurance representatives to find out

about getting supplemental insurance for the Park Ranger 1’s. In addition, the potential to

have policies for short-term disability insurance. The Commonwealth would have to sign-off

with the insurance company for this to go further. The insurance company needs the

Commonwealth to make arrangements for their payment to be made with deductions from

the workers paychecks. Hence, several details yet to be worked through.

B. Joshua Peck, Vice-President

positions and thus a different union of representation.

a previous decision in another arbitration with a similar subject. The arbitrator refused to rule

against a fellow arbitrator.

2. Delaware Valley Veteran Home– Grievance from July, 2015. The

Commonwealth offered to settle by giving the officer his lost pay and leave compensation. Officer
