Labor Management Meeting Notes
Dorm 15 MH Classification
On the board for this week – we will be doing half on Thursday, the rest on Friday. List was given to medical to go through and clear. Will present that list again for final approval Wednesday or Thursday morning. Excluded all in 4D and looking for 6B/C that is ineligible for medical perspective. Hopefully, after move, any MH inmates tagged in MCDC will be in 6 B/C or 4D. Dorm 17 will be moving over as well.

We need to evaluate different methods to approach how MOTs are done.

Chief’s are open to new ideas, would like to see possible ideas from the union for how to approach.
Governor state of emergency RSV
This discontinues 30 days of 7th day. Chief asked for the county to not invoke that, and county appears amicable and will present an MOU to the union about this. (In the future, this will not be the case, but we just got the contract in place and the Chief did not want the Union hit with it)
