Never let it be said that Stormin Mike doesn't "feel" for us. Never let it be said that Stormin Mike really cares about us as individuals and/or our families.
How shall we respond to this latest from his "heart" message? Let's give it a go, shall we?
He is completely glossing over the root cause of all that is happening right now! The resulting "lack of world class customer service" is in direct response to the policies that he and his stellar management team have handed us (along with the complicity of SEIU).
For him to say that he "appreciates" our effort is completely and totally insincere! We are not the ones who have failed to remember that the product that we deliver, "world class customer service", depends solely upon the morale and professional attitude of the workforce. Yet, Stormin Mike wants us to believe that he is not the problem. WE ARE THE PROBLEM!
When has this company ever shown us any appreciation? We must have missed it! Was it during the annual hot dog, chips and soda day, otherwise known as, Employee Appreciation Day? Or was it during the annual combined Thanksgiving and Christmas day luncheon? Was it during the Perfect Attendance Award handshake? Or was it when they stopped buying us the shoes which are part of our uniform? Try as we might, we just cannot remember a time when we have been sincerely and totally appreciated!
Now this one statement of his really made us stop and think. We could not help but laugh. He said that, "we would no longer be represented by SEIU!" That point alone seals the deal. That, Uncle Mike, would be a wonderful thing! If we were to go Federal, we would be represented by the American Federation Of Government Employees (AFGE). You remember them, don't you Uncle Mike?
So now let us get into the meat and potatoes of his brash and bold internal and confidential memo.
He said, " I will do my part to fight for your jobs at SFO." The only job that he will be fighting to keep is his own! There is no "Team SFO." There is only "Team Mike." There are only the self-serving issues that are important to a "FOR PROFIT COMPANY" with a Federal contract.
Let us not forget, it is "Profit and the pursuit of Profit" that drives this company. It is Profit before Product! It is, and it always will be, the number one issue for a private contractor with a Federal contract.
