Commissioners Comments and Announcements:
Byrd talked of the 4 hour call out pay and how it should be interpreted. Does the crew deserve 4 hours pay each time
they are called out? Mr. Byrd’s opinion
is yes they do.
Riley commented on employees that, for whatever reason, get insufficient time
to pay their portion of insurance. He is
in search of some way to keep a person already facing hardships due to illness
from having to pay for the insurance.
Andrews addressed the shortages of payments to the owners of the dirt
pits. Ms. Brown noted that all load
turned in at this time had been paid.
Mr. Riley noted, in his opinion, the most accurate count would come from
the pitman’s count record. Mr. Millender
was concerned as to who kept count when the pit man was not on hand.
Session adjourned at 9:53 AM.
