:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: You guys crack me up!!! I got into work 30m ago... check this out!! We had a Xmas raffle for our company employees. I work at a military site with all differrent contractors from seperate companies... anyway, my company "TRS" does a raffle for $1,000 bucks (I won last year). I came in tonight to find out the raffle was today and I was not included (nor were a bunch of other co-workers) People are pissed!! Emails are flying around, the boss should find out tomorrow... this will be interesting. Here is one email from our assistant lead to the boss:
Quote:
It came to my attention that this afternoon at DECCPAC there was a
drawing for the $1000 cash prize that TRS graciously donated. Due to
our 24/7/365 shift work schedule many of our TRS team-members were not
present for the drawing. I’m sure your intention was to have all TRS
employees be eligible to receive this gift regardless if they were on
shift at that time or had the day off.

Unfortunately for some of the team, Felecia Turner made the decision to
only include TRS employees physically present in the drawing. These
employees were Pat, Mike, Darren, Felecia, Myles, Warren and Leeann.
Excluded were Jacky, Lawrence, Mark, Brian, Ryan, Shing, Steve, Thomas
(opted out), Chad (he would have been on night shift if he still worked
here). As a matter of principality this was black and white unjust and
creates a potential fissure in our team atmosphere. The way this prize
was distributed was blatantly unprofessional, unfair and not conducive
to a constructive team work environment. Furthermore, no notification
of Felecia’s intention to exclude those not physically present was sent
on either our DECCPAC or TRS email.
This girl Felecia just pissed off a lot of people out here :redhot: :redhot:

My buddy Mark wrote this one:
Quote:
TRS Team,



I would like to bring a matter to everyone’s attention concerning our Christmas cash prize that was raffled earlier today. It seems that only half of all TRS personnel’s names were involved in the raffle. The raffle consisted of only seven names when there are fifteen TRS employees working here at DECC. Felecia, who was in charge of this so called raffle stated that only TRS personnel that were present for the drawing would be eligible to win the cash prize. First off I would like to say that whether or not a person is present should have no bearing on whether or not they should be eligible to win the raffle because we are all employees of TRS. Being an employee of TRS means we are all eligible regardless if we are at the raffle or at home after a shift. We have many employees working various shifts and to ask someone to come in for a raffle after being up all night would just be unfair. Teams are supposed to take care of each other and I thought we were supposed to be a team here at TRS. In addition, to this unjust raffle I would also like to point out that after speaking with some of my fellow employees that most of us were not even aware of when and where the raffle was to take place. So how am I along with my coworkers going to be penalized for not being at a raffle when we didn’t even find out about any such raffle until after it had already taken place? For something like this to occur is a travesty and just terrible for the morale of employees who work tough hours.

I think NO ONE should get it, after what happened. That was so wrong of her to "decide" not to include people and then NOT tell them!! I bet she wanted less names in there so she had a better chance of winning.
I saw the look on her face when I won last Ellis... she had hate in her eyes.

Eh, I don't care about the $$, or them re-doing the raffle. I just want to see her disciplined for this act. She had no right to exclude employees simply because they were not there.

It has!! :lol: I'm bringing in my flame thrower tomorrow!! :redhot:

I'm dying to hear what the boss is gonna say?? Hopefully he emails all of us tomorrow and not just the assistant lead (who emailed him). Because our boss is on the east coast, so I won't have to wait long for him to get wind of this...

Yeah, there is no way that they would re-do the raffle. Maybe they would draw a second name and the two people split the thousand. Hopefully she will be brought to justice

She does need to be brought to justice - "Beach Justice!!" I'm gonna throw her down in the sand at the beach and smush her face into the sand and say "taste that? That's the taste of beach justice!"

Just like on "Gumble to Gumble Beach Justice."
