Solidarity and empathy, comrade. Hope yr Trade Union is being supportive and offering sound advice/help.

The absolute rule is the role becomes redundant not the person. 90 day consultation and other work where possible, even if reduced hours/pay, should be offered - redundancy should be a final option not an excuse for a cost-cutting exercise. And if there are contractors onboard they should go and jobs be given to permies.

I've been through this a few times myself it's tough, but I've got a cousin who works on an employment law tribunal. Mail if you've got any Qs and I'll pass them on.

Thanks guys but I have been spared for a third time, however a lot of other haven't including some good friends and some extremely competent workmates.

Am feeling very guilty tonight about still having a job when so many others will not in a few months.

Mondo may still be in touch if any of the others have any questions if that's ok?

I am going to be going to Luton a lot more often by the sounds of things Dickie.

Shit!

Good to hear. Survivors guilt is tricky though.
