Classified Staff Council

MINUTES

April 7, 2008

Special Meeting

The Bluefield State College Classified Staff Council meeting was called to order at 1:36 pm in Tierney Conference Center, Dickason Hall by Lisa Neel, Chair, presiding.

Council Representatives Present: Lisa Neel, Chair Tom Harrison, Vice-Chair

Deirdre Guyton Jane Richardson Lori Dials Daniel Frost Vonda Wilson Carol Baldwin Fred Hardee

Council Representatives Absent: Stewart Odle, Anita Barilla

James Crenshaw Marviene Johnson

Classified Members Present: Kim Daniels Rick Akers

The minutes were not distributed and not prepared for the meeting. The secretary said that they would be ready for the next meeting.

The reason that we are here concerns a personnel issue that Frosty is going to explain.

Reports:

  1. Personnel Development—they have not met but will meet the week before finals for approval.
  2. Flower fund—we keep receiving monies in. We had to purchase two dish gardens recently.
  3. Social Committee—we need to get the Spotlight going.
  4. Wellness—No report.
  5. ACCE—have not met. Will meet this Friday (April 11).

Employee of the Year: Kim mentioned that we needed to meet and vote for "Employee of the Year" Exempt/Non-Exempt, so we will have to meet April 16, 2008 to vote.

• BOG: Mr. Frost mentioned full funding in the state. Those institutions fully funded are as follows:

o Shepherd

o New River

o WV Northern

o WV Osteopathic

WVU will request from their BOG in June to fully fund the salary schedule. Fairmont is going to fully fund and it was his understanding that Concord was meeting tomorrow to Special Meeting Classified Council 4.7.2008 Page 2

vote to fully fund their salary schedule as well. With that said, as the BOG representative, he (Mr. Frost) will be asking again to fully fund the salary schedule. It is his understanding that Concord will be asking to be fully funded by October 1. Governor did approve a 3% in budget for pay increases and we have increased tuition by 7.25% so he doesn’t know how far that will go.

The Board of Governors will be meeting tonight over a personnel issue. What he is going to bring up is if Classified Employees does or does not have confidence in this administration. Everybody always voices their concerns; he does not know what is going to happen tonight. They are trying to get him to recues himself from this meeting because of the grievance that he is in with the college. He stated that he has told them that on no certain terms that he will not recues himself because it should have no bearing on what will be discussed tonight with the Board of Governors. His question to the council is how do we want him to vote this evening? Vote ‘yes or no’ if this council has confidence in this administration particularly with this president. It will be entirely up to the council; we can write it on a secret ballot. ("Yes—if we support this administration or No—if we do not support this administration.") He wanted us to understand that this is not our personal vote, but the vote of our constituents. He will in turn vote the way this council tells him to vote should he be allowed to sit.

They have discussed the situation with Lisa and have asked her to sit. They cannot do that—it is against the law, yet the chair called her (Lisa) to inform her that she will be sitting in Executive Session.

Question to Mr. Frost: What charges are against him?

Answer: I don’t know if there are any charges yet. I can’t say and if I knew I could not say. Discussion followed. Question: What happened to the plan that was given to him last year? Discussion followed.

While the vote was being counted by Rick Akers, there was a lengthy discussion concerning the previous vote of the past Council and BOG members.

With eight members voting, the chair reported the vote: 6 in support to retain the president; 2 in favor not to retain the president. The Chair asked if there was any discussion. Several mentioned that they had pooled people before they voted. It is the consensus that Mr. Frost is to vote in support of the president.

Question: How are you going to vote for classified exempt and non-exempt? The chair stated that she will send out an email requesting people nominate classified for Employee of the Year. Discussion followed.

With no further business, meeting was adjourned.

Submitted by,

Lisa Neel, Chair

Deirdre Guyton, Recording Secretary
