He said he thoughl council lad decided the rifle approach should be taken to economic- induslrial development instead of the shotgun approach and that the budget of the EDC was the shotgun approach.

Non-union cily employees re- ceive 100 per cent sickness and accident benefits for a full year and do not make any financial contribution for th. coverage. The full cost is borne by the cily. Tee unions contend this im- parity is unfair. The electrical workers, which recently reject- ed a conciliator's award, (as did (lie city) did so partly be- caufc of the imparily in fringe benefits. The cily manager says non- union employees receive no j overtime when they work over- and do nol have job sec- urity as the union employees do, therefore there is justifica- tion for non-contributory sick- ness and accidenl benefits for non-union employees.
