Recording begins on side A with several incomplete (busy/no answer) telephone calls to John Mackenzie (in the Office of the Premier), Grant Schmidt, and Peter Hillcroft. The first full conversation begins with Dr. Allan Hanson (an Assistant Deputy Minister) in which Earle Mireau wants to know why the minister cannot create a position for him and explains some of the events that have led to Mireau's current employment situation (such as why he was terminated as a fire fighter and what happened during re-training that led to Mireau's complaint).

Conversation with Dr. Hanson continues on side B where other avenues of employment are discussed, as well as the progress of Mireau's human rights complaint, the terms under which the government has to operate to establish a job opening, and the ability of a minister to create a (training) position for Mireau.

An additional conversation is on side B between Earle Mireau and an unidentified woman. This conversation also deals with the issue of creating a position and the attitude of government administrators towards affirmative action initiatives.
