It seems to me that the CM is thinking of two things. Either he is worred about you guys costing the City more $$ funds due to FSLA issues or Overtime or #2-He just is unfamiliar with the 24 hour shift thing and does not want to go thier thinking you guys are trying to get something past him.
Just a thought.
Front line since 1983 and still going strong
