Memorandum of Understanding

  1. Snow Removal: The Custodial staff will be responsible for snow removal at the locations designated on the May 30, 2001 facilities list at start of the employee's shift, after the lunch break, and as assigned by the supervisor as conditions warrant. The union still needs to review the facilities list and verify with Randy Landsberg.
  2. The university will make a good faith effort to look for used furniture that may be available from other campus departments, to update the furniture in the Green Room. If no used furniture is available, then representatives of the university and AFSCME will discuss.
  3. The university will place a sign on the door of the refrigerator in the Green Room stating the refrigerator is for Service Maintenance employee use only. If this creates other unforeseen problems, the parties will re-review this issue.
  4. The university will continue to work to address AFSCME's concerns on distinguishing the differences between the SMOK and the SMON jobs, and emphasizing the additional duties and requirements of a Policy Officer.
  5. The personnel policy manual will be updated to reflect both Service maintenance and Food Service employees on the South Bend campus.
