Yet 6 minutes was taken from a 23 year employee. Can raises to Non-Union staff take place while operating under a contingency budget? Rocky & Wheeler stated “No raises are taking place.”

Wheeler states “We let them use the cell phones for their personal use as long as they don’t go over the allotted minutes.”
