Redundancy

#4
Not sure if it happened here.
Excellent. I will sleep easier now that I know that you're not sure if it happened there (wherever there is) . :)

You'll find this happens in lots of places - we just had a redundancy round at my company and we've lost another 10% on top. Once redundancies are announced people start looking for other employment just incase...some of those people like what they find and so will go whether they get redundancy or not...if they get it then it's a bonus.

Don't forget those who found out that their capbadge/rank combination meant that they weren't eligible - like me. That caused me to sign off many months ago.

We had four redundees out of eight in the brackets.
On top of the four that have signed off we had another two today...
Put that on top of the fitter section we are down from Op Entirety and the three PAP10.
Whats left you can safely say are going to be dry finger blasted roughly....

Big deal, a lot of "big hand, small map" thinking involved here.

18 Jun 13 Tranche 3 redundees get notified. Some people volunteered but not selected, sign off.

Jan 14 MoD revues numbers needed for Tranche 4, select fewer than anticipated because of seepage after Tranche 3.

I'm sorry for the people that got selected as non-volunteers. The bottom line is that the Army has been told to get smaller, some people are going to get made redundant.

There is a "good" process in place for administering those who are leaving. For those that got today's DVD starring Col P, you know what you have to do, starting from 0900 hours local this morning.

Get on with it.

No problem with that at all but what concerns me is the manpower left are told to suck it up Buttercup in the the Interim until this 2020 restructuring is sorted. Gapping posts is the norm at the moment where I am now we loose more and wont get replacements till they are SOS.....

There has been gapping since T1 and it has only got worse unless you are an AMP1 unit. There will be no improvement until we start striking whoe units of the ORBAT, so expect to be undermanned until at least spring/summer next year.

The problem hasn't suddenly happened from today ^~

Nope I agree but its going to get a lot worse before it gets better, I hit my last couple of years at the wrong time
things are going to hurt...

Caarps, I'm a UWO already. Attended the briefing today, my view is, it's a done deal, I'm sympathetic but now is the time to get a grip and move on.

Everyone got given a Service Leavers pack and other guidance. They can appeal or apply to transfer, but anyone in denial or pissing their time away is a fool.

Today they had 364 days left, tomorrow they'll have 363.

In fact, at the briefing today, it transpired that a number of those selected had chosen NOT to inform their spouses of the news.

It beggars belief and, yes, it's their choice, but NOT telling your spouse... I just don't understand.

Pink and fluffy is not the way ahead. Clear thinking and empathy is.
