VOLUNTEER CODE OF CONDUCT
Volunteers are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner while performing their assigned duties and follow the Volunteer Code of Conduct:
- Volunteers for the 102nd Grey Cup Festival are required to work a minimum of three six-hour shifts from November 25 to November 30. Some areas may required additional hours.
- You will be required to attend a mandatory event orientation to be held on a weekend in November. Your uniforms will be issued at that time.
- Volunteers will not have access to the game. There will be volunteer viewing areas provided for you to get together and watch the game via television feed.
- Volunteers are to wear their 102nd Grey Cup Festival apparel including credentials during their volunteer shift. You are representing the event while in uniform and that includes traveling to and from your work assignments. If attending other festival activities, volunteers are asked to remove their credentials and change their logo wear items.
- The Grey Cup strives to provide an environment free of discrimination and harassment. Discriminatory practices will not be tolerated. Volunteers are entitled to freedom from all forms of harassment in their work environment.
- Arrive on time according to your schedule. If you will be late or absent, call the volunteer office. Remember, your presence is essential to the efficient operation of your area.
- Smoking is NOT permitted while on duty. If you smoke on your break, please do so away from the public. Please ensure you have taken a breath mint prior to returning to work.
- Avoid personal confrontation. If a potential problem is evident, call your supervisor, security or a police officer.
- Being under the influence of any intoxicating substance while on duty is not permitted. The right to volunteer will be revoked in the event a volunteer is found intoxicated or under the influence of any illegal drug.
- Do not remove any signage or property unless authorized by your shift supervisor. Any activity of this nature without consent is considered theft.
- The various matters dealt with in the Volunteer Code of Conduct may not cover the full spectrum of volunteer activities. They are indicative of the 102nd Grey Cup Festival Volunteer Committee’s commitment to the maintenance of high standards of conduct and are to be considered descriptive of the type of behavior expected from the team.
