MEMORANDUM NO. 98-5

February 11, 1998

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

ATTENTION: Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business Managers, and Payroll and Personnel Officers
SUBJECT: Stipulated Agreement - NP-6/P-1 Bargaining Units
  1. PURPOSE: This memorandum serves as an addendum to Memorandum No. 97-36 dated June 16, 1997 to provide information on a stipulated agreement concerning the NP-6 and P-1 bargaining units.

  2. STIPULATED AGREEMENT: In a stipulated agreement dated November 5, 1997, the Office of Labor Relations, State of Connecticut, and the New England Health Care Employees Union District 1199 reached an understanding concerning the allowance of conference and workshop funds. Article 35, Section Six, Conference and Workshop Funds, provides that an employee will be entitled to a maximum of $500 reimbursement per contract year for appropriate costs related to attendance at conferences and/or workshops and that the entitlement may be combined once in any two-year period. The new language in the stipulated agreement states, "In the event that an individual is approved for this combined expenditure in a two year period and the expenditure is less than $1000 the balance remaining may be available in the second year of the two year period for an additional approved program".

Example: An employee requests approval for $700. If the employee is approved for the combined expenditure, since the expenditure is less than $1000, $300 is available for an additional approved program during the following year.

  1. QUESTIONS: Questions regarding this memorandum may be directed to the Comptroller's Policy Services Division at (860) 702-3437.
