    What did you get for Xmas from the Company

    We show up for work on Cristmas Eve. Work three hours and then back to the shop for a one hour party. After the party, go home with the rest of the day paid. We also received $200 in gift certificates.
    Local 449?

    I started a post similar to yours maybe you want to check it out. Seems like the big bonus this year was not getting laid off.

    Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.

    I guess I am very blessed for being the only service tech in my shop. I've only been with the company for 7 months and received a very nice bonus. I'm not trying to brag by any means, but I am happy to be taken care of.

    I got a $100.00 cash bonus
    I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos-Equis. I am the most interesting man in the world. Stay thirsty my friends.

    I got a letter than said we could no longer take work trucks home (installer), and due to someone throwing away half-used materials (glue, angle iron, flex, etc), we would not get our usual 200 cash bonus (I was counting on that to pay for some training). Previous years we have received tools, dealer and company clothing, and a Christmas party. We will also be switching to a time clock to clock in and out instead of writing our time down (fine by me, most of our jobs are 30 mins - an hour away from our shop). Tough times...just thankful for a job

    thats a load of garbage, just excuses from the company owner to pocket more cash or to hide that hes business challenged.

    If I am not mistaken the reason the owner is in business is to pocket cash? Maybe I am wrong put I thought that was the reason businesses are started.

    this is why i stopped thinking like a sucker, and started thinking like a company owner wich is to only care of whos more important and that would be numero uno.
