All Chook Industries Employees will not be receiving the 20% discount at
Office Max as promised at the beginning of the year.
2/4/00 - Passkeys have been installed on all bathrooms. Please stop by payroll to
get your Bathroom Debit Passkeys (BDP). General use of bathrooms will be complimentary
as will urinal use. However, toilet usage will cost $0.50 per visit. Also
remember your Bathroom Debit Pass-key (BDP) can be used to buy anything at Chook
Industries, just see payroll to add or subtract money to your account.
Passkey Meeting to be rescheduled on 2/5/00: After a number of complaints from
employees who felt they were unfairly fined for not attending the Passkey
Meeting held on 1/15/00 the meeting has been rescheduled to 2/5/00. Originally
the meeting had been scheduled for 1/17/00 but on an emergency basis the meeting
date had been changed to 1/15/00. Larry Snow said he would issue a comment later
this week concerning the matter. Because this is all highly irregular and
confusing, the new date for the Pass-Key meeting will be on 2/5/00. As it stands
now, all employees will not be fined until the issue of the missed meeting is
resolved at next week's board meeting. However, all non-salary workers will notice
that they have been fined. This does not mean you are really fined. This is all
due to how payroll puts out the paychecks; if employees are not fined then all
non-salary workers will be reimbursed. Hopefully all this will be amended soon.
It is with much regret that we must announce the cancellation of all scheduled "Bring your Pokemon
to Work" days indefinitely. After much discussion between Larry and
Jim, both agreed that while the
incident between William Brazil's "Rain soaked tire full of spiders" and
Larry's own "Dumpster Rat?"
was "cool", Nick Loven's site suggested that it wasn't safe.
As a result, the cafeteria has been shut down until everything has run its course.
The official ruling in the Snow/Brazil match has been declared a draw, and as such Mr. Brazil does
not win any new vacation days.
All employees are allowed to post a homepage on http://www.chook.net. If you are

Last week a notice was issued that no one was to put any more chocolate in the
microwave. Someone has taken it upon himself or herself to be a creative
"smart-ass". On Tuesday afternoon a photocopy of a Baby Ruth bar was found placed
on the rotating tray of the microwave. This type of behavior is not acceptable!
If these antics continue, then microwave privileges will be monitored in the
PASSKEY MEETING MEMO: Everyone who missed the Passkey Meeting on 1/15/00 will be
docked one day's pay. If you have any questions concerning, please see payroll.
The Passkey Meeting held on 1/15/00 was a success. Employees who would like a

The Chook Industries New Year Millenium Party was a howling success. It was a thriving party,
thanks due to Fat Boy Tom
of Webb Entertainment. A movie and picture page will follow shortly.
- Whoever is putting Baby Ruth
candy bars in the microwave had better stop! If you are caught melting chocolate bars
in the staff lounge you will pay the consequences. If you know anything about this,
please direct all feedback to Jim Shooter.
