APA Information Hotline
This is APA Communications Director Gregg Overman with the APA Information Hotline for Thursday, August 10.
APA BOARD OF DIRECTORS VOTING CONFERENCE CALL: The APA Board of Directors conducted a voting conference call today beginning at noon CDT to consider a proposed letter of agreement that would modify the premiums associated with the company’s core medical plan. Following a briefing by Negotiating Committee member CA Dave Rintel and Director of Benefits Mike Knoerr, the board voted not to approve the following motion: “to add to the August 10, 2017 Voting Conference Call Agenda a vote on the core medical plan.” During the discussion that preceded the vote, some board members cited the need for more time to perform due diligence.
The board subsequently voted to approve the following motion: “in accordance with APA Policy Manual paragraph 1.07 G 8, that the minutes of the voting conference call held on 10 Aug 2017 be distributed with the next special Board meeting minutes.” The next special board meeting is scheduled to begin on August 22 at 1 p.m. CDT.
R2016-11, Disclosure of All Motion and Resolution Disposition to Membership, which the board previously voted to approve, amended the APA Policy Manual Section 1.06 to specify that APA will include in its board meeting updates information regarding “main motions and resolutions and resolutions which are defeated, postponed, referred, and laid on the table.” In accordance with this resolution, this hotline message includes a synopsis of today’s session reflecting all main motions and resolutions that the board addressed.
That’s it for now. Thanks for checking this hotline.
