David E. Shulenburger, provost, Lindy Eakin, associate provost for support services; William J. Crowe, vice chancellor for information systems; and others will provide an update on actions with the payroll system. They also hope to solicit suggestions from those in attendance on how to improve KU's payroll system.
Two more meet-and-confer sessions have been scheduled for Oct. 10 and Nov. 17, according to Marc Adin, KU director of human resources and chief spokesman for the KU negotiating team.
Discussion of the procedural ground rules will continue Oct. 10.
"It's my hope that we will begin to address some of the substantive issues at the Oct. 10 meeting," Adin said. "It's time for us to move forward with an agreement that is in the best interest of the students, GTAs and the university."
The GTAs voted in April 1995 to be represented by the Kansas Association of Public Employees. The union subsequently filed a complaint alleging that the university had committed prohibited practices by not giving GTAs a salary increase for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1995. A hearing officer with the state Public Employees Relations Board entered an initial order dismissing the complaint in July of this year.
Currently, GTAs have no formal agreement governing their employment at KU.
The KU Medical Center staff expects to administer 4,000 vaccinations to people who drive around the campus, beginning at 39th and Rainbow Boulevard. The route will take them through four stations, where they will receive information about the vaccinations and receive their flu shots without leaving their cars.
For more information about the clinic, call (785) 588-1291.
The wage increase for all non-exempt employees will be held automatically by a program in the payroll data base. Departments will not need to do anything to carry out this increase; it will be handled for them.
However, departments with exempt employees making less than the new minimum must identify those employees and change their rates through normal procedures.
The workshop was designed specifically for, by and with entrepreneurs to help participants boost their sales.
The workshop will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 5 at Hampton Inn, 2300 W. Sixth. St.
The registration fee is $149 and includes all course materials, continental breakfast and lunch.
For more information, call the center at 843-8844.
