Best Line of the Day

"One (1) email generated a response from 400 operators to come to the meeting. Operators from all over the country flew through a hurricane to get to Tampa.

The opening line of this comment reminded me of the Finale episode of the TV comedy series "Seinfeld".

In the episode, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer got arrested in a small New England town. The prosecutor went out and found a number of people who had a history with the four.

There followed a series of scenes of people they'd wronged (all had appeared as characters
in the nine seasons) packing their bags and heading out the door to travel to the trial.

Looks like 400 McDonald's Operators did the same thing.

Mind you it was one email to the CoOp Presidents that may or likely not even shared. I didn’t find out about it from mine. I was there and proud of us looking to unite as one voice and look to preserve the culture that is McDonalds. 400 isn’t 1700 and we need to get together, bringing our concerns with solutions to the table. December 12, 2018 in Dallas. Talk to Operators that were there and understand where we are and what we are looking to do. A good time to sell is not a good place to be.

I can understand if a Co-Op president who takes their marching orders from corporate doesn't want to use the "partners" system to distribute such a message. But, they should at least use their private Email account to fulfil their responsibilities.

Does anyone know if McDonald’s Corporate can view O/O’s Partners emails? I am not asking if it is legal (I think we all know they make their own rules) but do they review emails at their discretion as common practice to gain information or keep an upper hand on the Operator community?

Since the launch of the "partners" platform, I've assumed that anyone who uses it should have NO expectation of privacy. When I get an E-mail from partners I respond but only saying the Operator needs to contact with a private E-mail address.

But that's as it should be. It's their system on their servers, maintained by their people. If I worked for IBM I'd have an IBM E-mail account that I would assume IBM monitors to some degree. Same with partners. Do they have a room full of clones watching every partners message? Doubtful, but they might be able to flag for different words or names.

When Partners was new it was many Operator's first exposure to E-mail. It now it seems everyone has personal accounts, especially with all the free services available out there.
