I've just heard that one of the lads who deployed with 32SRG as part of OP TOSCA (and had to fight for his job on his return when they tried to sack him) has had a letter basically telling him that he has to choose between the TA and his job because they are withdrawing what (little) support they had for him. Nothing unusual there I hear you say, and indeed I'm sad to say it isn't, but the thing which really gets my pip is that he works for a company who has made a lot of money from the MoD (they have the contract to supply all the Combat Power Tools to the Army). In America, I believe any company who does not support its employees attanding National Guard training have the government crawling all over them (IRS audits, withdrawn contracts etc). About time the TA had some better support from the Government, who expect the TA to come runing when called. Any other stories about shitty employers?
