  • 6. conflict resolution - 10 minutes max
    • updates from 2 previous complaints raised
      • We railroaded through this before anyone could speak...
      • This conflict was articulated at the last meeting and we tabled the decision-making process in order to practice fairness, enable further possible conflict resolution, and get additional necessary perspectives from Timon:
        • On more than one occasion, Timon has acted aggressively and behaved in a threatening manner. On one occasion, in the middle of the night, Timon refused to leave the space and made Jenny feel unsafe. On an earlier, unrelated occasion Marc felt unsafe when Timon approached him and spoke to him aggressively.
      • Timon explains himself, feels misunderstood and explains circumstances around why he was on-edge - and that Jenny was too extreme in threating.
      • After hearing Timon's perspective, the group informally straw-polled at 12-0-1 votes to table making a decision on this issue until the next meeting, at which point potential resolutions can be proposed and we can then use a particular decisions procedure that fits the resolution on the table.
