    2 days left and not a sniff of food. Don't really care, just wondering if another employee friendly tradition is gone.

    Corporate sent down a directive to not do it because the Union might claim it is setting precedence.

    Neither Corporate or the Union should be involved. 2 shares of the bosses MIP would buy alot of pizza.

    No sloppy joe...no canned stew...no pizza...no subs...no chilli...no hot dogs...

    last year we had food several nights each week during peak, especially when the weather was bad and everybody got in late.

    grievance is on file already Hoax... lol.... actually all of our sups have been too busy being on the road delivering to be setting up food services. We did have a driver "mom" set up a breakfast one day last week for all of the drivers... thats about it

    A couple of OMSs here put together a nice buffet for the Saturday Air dept. They did it once in July, too. Out of their own pockets, I was told.

    Not a crumb here either. Even the food machine is empty.

    They use to fill up coolers with ice, water, and gatorades during heat waves in the summer. Now we are lucky if the ice machines even work in the building.

    Not yet, still waiting to see if Santa arrives or the grinch.................

    You have ice machines??????

    HEFFERNAN Huge Member

    There are 2 or 3 ice machines scattered around the building. Nice easy way to fill up the cooler before start time.

    A few years ago in Package, they'd have a really good buffet breakfast. I liked that because I'd rather come in early for the party than stay late for it.

    I've been in Feeders for 4 Peaks now so I don't know if they still do it.

    Somebody brought a few of those 4-foot long Subway sandwiches in to the center office, but they were almost gone by the time I clocked off.

    I view the food the same way I view the turkeys....they were nice traditions but times have changed and it is a bad idea to develop a sense of entitlement or expectation around a gift. In the grand scheme of things there much more important matters to be concerned about.
