Agenda Item 6

(Paul) Annul no-show for my 2/23 “BCU” labor. This labor lacks description, lacked a brunch that day, and neatly matched the extra 1.5 hours of labor that I was assigned every week for the two-month period I'm being reviewed for, bringing me to 5.5 hours total/week.

Paul - I was assigned was 5.5 labor hours a week and was doing the work for 4 hours necessary and I wasn’t able to do the extra time.
