ATTENTION: EMPLOYEES IN THE SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE UNIT:
Kansas State University and the Kansas Association of Public Employees (KAPE) are currently involved in meet and confer (or negotiations) towards a new memorandum of agreement. KAPE represents our Service and Maintenance employees and you are in that unit.
Recently, the Kansas Board of Regents voted to allow an increased vacation benefit to USS employees of its institutions. However, the law requires that the university and KAPE meet and confer (or negotiate) on mandatory topics of bargaining and we are in the process of doing so. Any change to vacation accrual for employees in this unit will be effective after a successor agreement is finalized and approved by the parties, the Kansas Board of Regents and the Secretary of Administration, as required by state law.
Questions about the union’s position should be referred to the KAPE union president, Bill Glover, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-770-9264. Thank you.
–Gary Leitnaker, Director of Labor Relations

Our Building Maintenance crew is missing two 8-foot ladders that were requested for our Division of Facilities Family Day activities on Friday, August 5th. The ladders (labeled Zone 5) were placed near the fountain on Bosco Plaza early Friday morning. When our crew returned to retrieve them they were missing. If you have any information on where they may be located please contact the Facilities front desk at 785-532-1707 as soon as possible. Thank you!!
