Convergys

This is where to post the names of places to boycott because they have anti-gun, anti-freedom stances or policies. Any posts advocating boycotts must explain the reasons for the boycotts including, if possible, documentary proof, such as links to business web sites or news articles.

Convergys

I don't know if this is necessarily a "boycott", but rather an FYI for folks that might work there (there are thousands in the valleys that do). Convergys has some VERY anti-gun rules.

You cannot have any sort of firearm or blade (of any length) at work. I guess even my little Leatherman Micra is a no-no. You cannot even have a firearm stored and secured IN YOUR vehicle on any of the company's parking lots. That goes for owned/leased/rented lots, whatever they may be.

I like to shoot on a lunch break when I can get away for an hour or so, and didn't know this rule until recently when I checked the written Company Policy. It's VERY specific. I think the only way I will be able to continue to enjoy shooting during a lunch is if I park on a public street during work.

Again, just an FYI for those that might be employees. Be very careful. It's a terminable offense.

Part of the policy is from the group that manages the buildings that convergys leases, canyon park. They made a lot of these rules. You should not work for convergys on the principal of human decency alone and if you have any self respect, which evidently I did not for several years. I escaped from convergys a while ago and I'm so much happier and making a lot more money.

Thankfully the Utah House and Senate changed that last year!

hMMM...perhaps you should bring up the fact that most women are carrying weapons with them daily in their purse, ie...
files--steel files are blades. Not to mention countless other items such as nail clippers which can be used as a blade too.
Sounds like a dispicable rules set to be under the thumb of.

-1 upon you sir. If its between me working there and getting food stamps I will work and keep my honor and laugh as you keep your self respect. If you are lucky to have a job be grateful.
People say I should not carry because it's not the Wild West. I say I carry because its much worse. Only 3 people died at the at the O.K. Corral and its a part of our nations history. If 3 people died in a 30 sec shootout today It might not make the news.
