Forced overtime at state facilities has reached a breaking point. KOSE is currently engaged in meet and confer with the Topeka Correctional Facility over their changes to the mandatory overtime policy. KOSE has requested meet and confer at Larned State Hospital as well. Their Human Resource Department is analyzing forced overtime patterns before the first meeting with the union. Additionally, KOSE and management of the Elsworth Correctional Facility will meet in the first week of October to discuss implementation of 12 hour shifts.
