There's word as many as 30 employees with the city of Hamilton have been suspended with pay.
City officials aren't commenting because it's a personnel issue but CHCH says the workers have been suspended for allegedly taking their assigned city trucks to go shopping, go home and go for meals.
They're employed in the road maintenance division.
The city's director of employee and labour relations says the workers have not actually been suspended -- rather that they are on leave with pay pending an investigation.
City manager Chris Murray says the investigation could take a couple of weeks.
