    Rev reacted to uttoxram75 in Factory jobs   
    I've been elected to represent the factory based salaried staff in the Consultation meetings regarding the "proposed" closure of our factory.
    Had our first meeting today and it was quite brutal. We're ducked. Its an old site and due to several changes of ownership in recent years leading to no investment, coupled with mental increases in the price of flour, sugar, palm oil, and energy costs over the last 18 months, there is no way back.
    We are not financially viable.
    We have been through severe restructures in recent years, chopping jobs left, right and centre to no avail, the company that owns us does not want to modernise and invest so we will close in March 2022.
    I've worked there for 42 years. Started as a machine operator in 1978, ended up as a Shift Production Manager, covered the Operations Manager role for a period when the site was between owners. FFS, I met me missus there!
    In a small town like Uttoxeter, I have seen kids and grandkids of lads I first worked with start their working life at the factory. Had blokes coming up to me in pubs demanding to know why their lad had been sacked, had people begging me for jobs, my wife has been threatened because I had to sack somebody.
    I have also had people come up to me and thanked me for giving them confidence to improve their lives, people who I used to work with who now run their own businesses who always buy me a pint because they were inspired by me. I can't express the feeling that gives me.
    My son did his engineering apprenticeship at the factory and is now the Operations Manager for Aggreko in Asia. My daughter worked there for a few years part time running the factory shop and now runs her own business.
    We used to do Evening shifts, Lunch Time relief shifts  etc that appealed to mums who wanted a part time job to work around childcare but we had to stop all that as we got taken over by different companies. We were a factory that was part of our community.
    Its a sad situation but I will do everything I can to negotiate the best possible deal for the people who have asked me to represent them.
     
    I'm a bit emotional and had a couple of drinks so time to call it a night.

    This is shameful. I'd pop something up on the club's Twitter feed and embarrass them into putting this right by some form of discretionary payment. A long shot perhaps, but I'd not be letting this lie. Best of luck in any case.

    Rev reacted to maydrakin in Pathetic Customer Service   
    I am writing this, largely out of frustration, but I feel I need to get it off my chest.
    My dad was a season ticket holder for 50-odd years and he died of cancer in September. (I joined him as a season ticket holder from 1987)
    He had renewed his ticket for the 2020-21 season before the pandemic hit which was carried over into this season.
    In April, when he knew he was too poorly to go again, he wrote to the ticket office advising as such and would therefore prefer a refund to the ticket for 2021-22.
    He received a response saying that the club could not provide a refund as the deadline had since passed.
    As a result, I wrote to the club in July to see if an amicable solution could be found to transfer his ticket to my friend who would pay the difference from a 65+ ticket to a standard adult one, then paying my dad for the rest of the ticket.
    I heard nothing.  I chased again twice and still heard nothing.
    In an attempt to try and sort it out before the season ticket deadline (after my dad had recently died and after Derby had gone into administration), I went to the ticket office and was advised the process would be that my friend would have to buy the ticket in full and my dad could get a refund on his seat, due to his death.
    I therefore paid for my friend’s seat (which was my dad’s seat) in full for my friend and gave details with regards to getting a refund.
    This week, the SLO contacted me to say that it would be possible to upgrade his seat to my friend and to contact the ticket office accordingly, in response to my email sent in July.
    When I explained what I had already been told by the ticket office, I received another email advising that due to the administration events, no refund could be given at all.
    So, Derby County have taken my dad’s money and my friend’s money for the same seat, have given me conflicting information and are now reneging on returning my Dad’s refund (which would have obviously gone to my mother).
    I have requested that I get his season ticket back but for a different seat, as I can either bring someone else, or sell it on to recover some of the cash, but have had no response so far.
    I can’t express how poorly I have felt Derby have handled this, (effectively costing me over £300) and it shows how much they valued my dad as a “customer”, when their lack of providing the correct information or acting in a timely manner could have seen this resolved.
    Overall, I’m really saddened that this becomes my Dad’s final legacy with the club that he loved.

    I know that sounds ok right now, but look at what his ownership has done to a wonderful club.
    I know people say Newcastle fans have a sense of entitlement, despite not having won anything in years, but look how his ownership has sucked any hope out of its supporters, and turned the entire fanbase against him.
    They exist in a purgatory, between the club they've become, and the club a little ambition would become, an irrelevance beyond their fanbase, and an embarrassment to their diminishing fanbase.

    You’re good at this 😁
    On a more serious note my Mother was a big believer in ghosts and told the tale of being in her first home when married which used to be part of a coaching inn. One early evening she was alone in the house when she saw a figure at the top of the stairs. She was thinking my father had returned home without her knowing when just then he walked through the door. When she turned back round the figure had vanished.
    She also told me she had seen a Roundhead soldier at the window of a bedroom in her parents house. It did not help a certain 6 year old child get to sleep alone in that very room when visiting. I put it all down to her being Welsh.

    See the bottom bullet point. From my understanding, Rams Lite was all that was need for season ticket holders who wanted priority access to away tickets.
