[ed:  thanks to Chris for responding to Nadine's query.]

From: "Chris Cavanagh" <story at web.ca>

Hi, Nadine,

chris cavanagh here from the Catalyst Centre in Toronto. We're a popular 
education worker co-op and non-profit, to boot.

I'll send you a copy of our staff policies which we took a year to 
craft. It doesn't include exactly what you list as your need. But i 
think you might appreciate the plain language we used. At least it's as 
plain as we could make it in the spirit of sustaining a democratic 
collective. I'll send this directly to your e-mail.
