responsible position "Yuu are going to have a bigger crew this said Mr Bota adding that if illness should strike him down, an assistant foreman must be trained and ready to assume full responsibility I don t see how we can go against our foreman if he wants another man put in as assistant foreman agreed Coun John Davis Said Coun Tilbe "You have a union contract you must abide by There is nothing in the contract that says you can't appoint a temporary foreman said Mr Bota I certainly feel a superintendent needs a backup man said Coun Phil Hodnett adding, "Our recreation director is going to need a backup man which we are trying to find Secretary Roy White noted that when a man is lowered in category he receives the higher wage until 13 weeks have elapsed and then goes to a lower rate When a man is promoted temporarily, he receives the higher rate immediately It was also noted a man is not considered a steady employee until he has completed 12 full months of continuous employment
