appropriation from the State. If it does not occur, the president indicated that other funding plans would be considered. Chancellor Stukel noted that some issues regarding the relocation of the Maxwell Street Market were under discussion with the city of Chicago and the merchants and vendors. In later discussion, Ms. Reese asked Mr. Higgins what control the city would have over the land to be acquired south of Roosevelt Road. He replied that the city would be responsible for providing the setbacks and for lighting in the area.
Report from Legal Counsel
(1) Mr. Higgins presented a case involving an employee who was once dismissed then reinstated at the University after being granted this as resolution to a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Since the reemployment of this particular employee, relations among staff in the employing unit have been strained. Mr. Higgins recommended that a settlement offer be pursued with this employee, given the fact that a resolution to the difficulties now acknowledged in the work setting did not seem probable. By consensus, the board members gave Mr. Higgins approval to pursue such a settlement. Ms. Reese later asked Mr. Higgins about one tenant in the building formerly known as Circle Court Shopping Center who was expected to move. Mr. Higgins indicated that the tenant had been notified of the need to move and was planning to comply.
Report from Comptroller
Dr. Bazzani described the status of negotiations between the University and Local 73 of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), inasmuch as the deputy trustee for this local had written the trustees a complaint regarding negotiations with the University. He indicated that the most difficult point in these negotiations was the definition of parity and the application of parity adjustments for employees with lower salaries. Next, Dr. Bazzani reported on negotiations between the University and the Illinois Nurses Association (INA). He discussed the recently filed complaint by the INA with the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board and the relation of this to the Operations Improvement program within the University Hospital. Dr. Bacon told her colleagues that there was a major change in staffing patterns involving nurses throughout the country and that this fact should be communicated.
