Every person at the plant was wondering what the upcoming meeting was going to be about.
Some suspected a big layoff as the work that was coming in was sparse and the fact that all overtime had been suspended for the last month had them worried.
The managers and supervisors were all in the dark too and were being asked by several people what was going on and all they’d say was everyone would find out at the meeting after lunch.
Gathered all together anticipating the worst the employees sat in silence waiting for the CEO to begin.
“Hello everyone, I know you’re all wondering why I called this meeting today and for what purpose.”
“First, off next month we’re getting in a big contract to process and we’ll be needing all hands on deck and I want you all to be prepared for overtime hours and if you had vacation time booked, it is now canceled.”
