Doesn't sound "decent".....well I guess to some maybe.I did get a watch, my job steward started my ceremony presenting it to me. I still haven't figured how to take extra links out of it.
It's strange how retirements happen from Center-to-Center. My manager wouldn't look me in the face after I told him I picked my date in October. We do decent retirement ceremonies in my Hub. The same manager didn't do a thing for a couple of drivers that retired from a nearby Center in the same Division.
