There was discussion about shift differential and the need to look at the policy for shift differential for clarification as it seems to have a lot of confusion surrounding shift differential.

Discussion ensued about the Sick Pool and the proposal draft of the plan that Belinda put together.† Greg offered a suggestion to find a way of measuring cost savings that could occur as an outcome of this initiative.††
