No doubt you have all seen the stories and, frankly disgusting images, of food that serving personnel allege is being served.
If not, click the image.
This is not a comment on Pay As You Dine or the rights and wrongs of the individual instances but a thought on the chain of command and the sheer frustration that has driven serving personnel to circumnavigate it.
If these issues are not isolated, as appears when one reads the comments on Facebook, and if they are a result of many years of frustration at inaction, again as would appear to be the case when reading the comments, how has the chain of command so spectacularly failed its personnel?
Were Very Senior Officers’s aware of the issues, what is the contract governance arrangements and what would posses anyone in their right mind to issue a warning about legal action?
Have we learned nothing about the modern era of social media and crisis communications?
The issue of dodgy food is almost secondary, how has it come to this, letting our personnel down so badly they have to resort to Facebook?
