Dear [recipient's name]:
I received your note dated June 10, 2010, which stated that I had been terminated from my position as production supervisor. The note stated that this decision had occurred as a result of my recent annual performance review. I would like to respectfully ask you to reconsider this decision, making it possible for me to keep my position.
The issued that were mentioned from my performance review were actually relatively minor issues that were resolved, and that have drastically improved, as of 6 months ago. Thus, they are no longer current or recent performance issues.
I would be happy to provide any additional information that you might require in order to process my appeal, so please let me know if you have questions or need further detail. Thank you very much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
