Uniform standards

It’s good to see that with closed loop, poor morale, non negotiated contracts etc etc etc that the third floor has its head screwed on with the latest edict on dress standards. Good on ya for that genius move, I can see morale soaring now……

How long will it be until people begin to realise that the company leaders do not care about morale?

Issuing the uniform policy now is a warning to everyone.

It's another set of rules to punish you with if you don't have your attire on correctly as set out in the policy.

A quick glance on the company ‘social media’ will highlight that management doesn’t care about about morale, nor any of its pilots concerns.

Oh but please keep volunteering for closed loops

It’s cost saving, first, second and third.

I still remember my humiliating dress down in the terminal in HK by an STC for wearing my jacket but not having it buttoned up (as clearly stated in op's A), what a company ! I don't miss that rubbish.

Call me old-fashioned, but is it really so unreasonable to wear a uniform properly when out and about in public?

Yes. When it's uncomfortable, hot for example, or having a tie around your neck in the Midfield Terminal after an 18 hour duty and sitting on the naughty step fuming with anger.

No, not unreasonable at all, you are absolutely correct. Call me old fashioned, but is it really so unreasonable to expect a colleague not to “dress another down” in public.

The level of self importance here is embarrassing.

Nope, not unreasonable and I did not mean to imply a public dressing down was acceptable.

Forgive me, but that is just the time when one should be able to demonstrate the standards required.

What standard?

do you think passengers care if pilots are wearing ties after a flight? give us a break… do you care when the MTR operator is not wearing his hat and tie? Get over your ego and start accepting that a career in CX is now the joke in the industry.

The thing is, it's not about the uniform it's what that uniform represents. If your uniform represents a giant stinking pile of you are hardly going to care about wearing it correctly are you?

It reflects just as badly on you personally as it does the company. If you feel comfortable walking around looking like a sack of then so be it, but don’t expect any sympathy from anyone, especially the pax.
