Customer: replied 1 year ago.
4 years no salary rise in 2 years ,2 years ago i was given a bonus of £1780 which related to bar/club profits for jan to dec 2014 which was paid end of april 2015 so last year jan to dec 2015 bonus should have been paid april 2016 i spoke to the secretary and indicated that on going i wanted a salary rise not a yearly bonus the secretary has taken that i did not want the bonus i made it clear i want want i am owed from 2015 and at my review ongoing i want a salary rise and the bonus scrapped the way the committee work here they find it hard to reward anybody i have been at the club just over 4 years the club had gone from strength to strength making £37.000 in my first year £68.000 in the second and £77.000 last year i was taken on to turn round the losses of the club before i arrived ,i was told that i should get a bonus at the end of this month but not the figure
