@ wolvesposty and Fruitster.
I think you should focus on accumulated. No time span given but if you look at the recent historical price you might have an idea when I've bought. As I stated the """"last tranche"""" was bought at 195p. Investment closer to 11K than 12K. And I sold on Friday. Still holding my 81 freebies though and any matching shares that I've "accumulated".
And regarding overtime: You do both realise that you don't have to work over your daily finish time for overtime? You only have to work over your hours.
Please get your facts right!
Fruitster. How's that fantastic bonus plan shaping up? Do you still think it's workable? Or have you realised how stupid it was?
Excellent news. I've been buying heavily recently.
Last tranche at 195p. I've now accumulated nearly 6000 at an average of 198p.
And the best thing is that they were paid for by overtime. Since the news IA was going to be a factor in RMG I've been doing plenty of o/t.
Just trying to shore up the IA fund.
And what better way than buying shares on the cheap, reaping the divis and then selling.
The thing that makes me really happy though, is my overtime (and many of my workmates) has been funded by shareholders.
Thanks all. I'll let you know when I sell.
And I'm still waiting for that bonus plan Fruitster!!!
Illness like cancer you mean. Heart disease? Brain hemorrhage? How about if you're knocked down?
I know the score.... wink wink.
Seniority for A/L? Do your homework. Or maybe you should ask your union rep. Oh wait. You don't have one.
And as for seniority? It does not apply to annual leave. I thought you'd would have known that. Ask your union rep.
Oh wait. You don't have one
A/L from the 24th actually. Although how this would affect my grandson I don't know.
I've already said ""some of us have a life outside RMG"". Try it, you may like it.
And as for pressure, none at all. I know my finishing time and I have better things to do.
As for wallingtons: It would appear that I have it wrong. How many more times do you want me to say it?
Anyway. Back to Fruitster from where this all started.
Can you give me a performance related bonus scheme that encompasses all that you posted earlier and would fit all?
Some of us have a life outside RMG. But if you're suggesting that I should leave my grandson waiting for me at the school gates while I work that extra half hour, who am I to argue with you?
And I did finish early in the past. Not since SDD though. That was about 18 years ago in my office.
I didn't say the duties were equal, did I?
I said that you were governed by your time.
Do you not understand what that means?
And as for the 60 year olds completing their duties by going over, so what!
If you can give me a good reason why my life outside work should take preference over my life inside work, then tell me what it is.
I wasn't aware that wallingtons applied in December, so I will apologise.
And for the record, I am my postman. And after all the issues recently I didn't take or deliver my mail. It was done by somebody else. So yes, I failed my own mail.
Regarding the stamps and bonus, well tell RMG to take them away if that's what they are for. You are clearly wrong on this one!
You're an angry little person aren't you?
How do you differentiate between someone who's 60 and someone who's 20? Does the 60 year old get penalised because he will clearly be slower?
What about people with serious illnesses?
Ones that have been knocked over?
What about management bias?
You have all the answers, well post them. And try your hardest not to be judgemental. Although I imagine that is quite hard, judging by your responses when somebody calls you out.
Of course I took my break. Are you suggesting I shouldn't?
And I did finish on my time, and I did cut off. Are you suggesting that I have to work over my time? You have no idea what I do after my finish time at RMG.
And why should I return my free stamps and xmas bonus? Are they issued to staff who go over only? Besides I don't see the anti CWU brigade giving up their pay rises, pensions, shorter working weeks etc. Now that is hypocrisy!
One other thing, copied from your post: ******...been in today on week off to help out..******. I've been working for RMG for 30 years and I've never known any annual leave granted in December. Are you sure you're on week off as you suggest?
Absolutely pathetic post!
Some of the posters here just make things up as they go along, and the idiotic herd agree and follow.
The sheer desperation to justify their investment is now so apparent, it's embarrassing.
@ JB Thistle.
"""""Ispy I really can't understand what satisfaction you are getting from trying to goad people on here you appear to be annoyed that anyone dare invest in RMG and your sly comments about people losing do not reflect well on you""""
No satisfaction at all. Merely pointing out that the majority of posters here (all) talk through their wallets.
It's my opinion. Am I not allowed to have one?
What do I stand to gain from all of this negative posting?
Your answer will be " I DON'T KNOW"
"""""busiest Saturday I have worked today...manic for a Saturday... worked over on a Saturday to complete duty and finish others that wanted to finish on time (or early).... not just me though. many have... militants finished on time. let everyone else soak up the pressure.. """"""
Two points that I have to raise:
1 - Why are you and you're managers allowing staff to go home early?
2 - Why is finishing on my time, and telling a manager that I will not be able to complete, constitute being a militant?
But you can, cant you?
Become a manager. Start as a lino and work your way up. With your apparent work ethic and ability to slate your work colleagues, I'm sure you'll go far.
I had a manager in my office. Started as a postie in another office.
Within a month he was indoors.
Within a year he was in charge of a rather large area, by default.
But you're too scared. IMO
Why would I be knackered?
Started on my time. Took my 40 minutes break.
Used the loo twice.
Went out on delivery. Poodled around a bit delivering mail. Spoke to a few customers.
Finished on my time. Had to cut off though.
The extra 25 minutes might have been too much.
Lifes great. And I'm relaxed.
I'll be even more relaxed with IA next year.
You however, appear to be a tad angry.
Losing again are you wolvesy? Mwah mwah.
Not interested in the shorters. You and I have no control over shorting, so if you invest it's a fact of life.
And I meant short term. 3-6 months. Sorry if that wasn't clear, but I thought my post focussed on share price movement pre and post xmas.
Nothing wrong with wanting profit as my post states.
Read it again please.
At least give a reason for your ridiculous post.
I can't see anything bad in mine.
Are you another " loser " here?
Blaming and abusing everybody apart from yourself?
Read my post again and answer me. If you can!
