Just got wind of my own personal SHTF situation....

Just got wind of my own personal SHTF situation....
Just got wind of my own personal SHTF situation....

I have been suddenly summonsed to a "meeting" with my ops manager on Tuesday.

The "tone" of his email is not in it's usual feel......ExclamationDodgy

there has been a couple of things that just haven't felt right over the last couple of weeks so I'm making a prediction - I think I am going to be made "redundant" and this meeting will in fact be used as the first consultation meeting with a "view" to making me redundant.

This is in fact a ruse Angry and the actual term is a "bumped redundancy" because he can, by making me redundant, put thousands of pounds a year back in his own greedy pocket.

One side of his business is basically collapsing and by "manufacturing" my redundancy and bumping me (as a manager) and replacing me with a lower paid "supervisor" he was going to make redundant he gains literally 1000's a year to put in his greedy coffers.

He has got to be careful and play by the rules otherwise I could have a case for unfair/constructive dismissal but the fact still remains that I start the year with no future in this job - Happy New Year everyone - including my greedy conniving a/hole boss! One slip sonny boy and I'll have your guts for bow-strings.......

my first time was legit, but the other 2 were just the end of the contracts, they just called it redundancy.

This pure, unadulterated greed..... he has turned a lot of his "employees" in to self-employed contractors that he can "lay-off" as and when required and the few of us that can't be converted because of the contract, are being replace by lower paid "yes-men", either through "natural wastage" or contrivance........

Thanks for the optimism but as we haven't had a rise (and in fact a pay cut!) in 7 years a promotion is absolutely not on the cards - a shafting yes, absolutely!!!!! AngryAngryAngry
