Friday, February 26 gas leak at the plant

First shift was sent home shortly after 10:00 AM Friday, February 26th due to a gas leak of unknown origin in the plant. We are investigating the situation and hope to have it rectified within the next few hours. As it stands now, we are planning on there being a 2nd and 3rd shift tonight.
 
All first shift workers who went home will receive half-day pay to 11:00 AM and will be eligible for OT pay for all 8 hours they work Saturday even though they wouldn’t not have worked the required 40 this week.

UPDATE AT 11:30 AM: This morning’s gas leak has been found and repaired. Production will resume at the start of 2nd shift.
