There were no changes made to the agenda, and there was no public comment.

The process for negotiations and the Board’s approval of the next Union Contract was reviewed.

John Bohannon moved that premature general knowledge of the details concerning a personnel matter involving RFPL (Rockingham Free Public Library) employees will clearly place the employees, the Union, and the Board at a substantial disadvantage by disclosing the personal details of this topic.  BradyWeinstock seconded and the motion passed.

John Bohannon then moved that the Committee enter into executive session to discuss a personnel matter where premature general public knowledge would clearly place the Library and the Union at a substantial disadvantage, and that the Director, Union representative, and concerned employees be invited to attend.  Brady Weinstock seconded this motion and the motion passed.

The meeting entered executive session at 10:07.  Participants came out of Executive Session at 10:55. It was stated that a memorandum of understanding will be brought to the next Library Board meeting on November 28 to be reviewed by the full Board.

There was no other business and the meeting adjoined at 11:56.
