    While you are squabbling about other issues did anyone else notice that they want to cut the amount of funeral leave that we get. Is two days really enough to bury a spouse or child. We used to have a solid 4 now they are cutting it to two with conditions.

    No. Article 29 section 2. Nothing has changed from the last contract.
