Never good news

A week ago the staff in the warehouse were given the option of agreeing to work a 4 day week. I am not entirely sure what they were told. But I do know that all of them would have to agree to work a 4 day week or there would be lay offs. Over the last week there has been much consideration and discussion of this subject and the effects it will have on the worker's pockets. Today they each gave their decision (secretly). Incredibly at least one person has rejected the 4 day week. Because it only took one person to say no, the 4 day week will not be put into action. Instead the workforce will be educed in number. I do not envy the warehouse manager who has to decide who out of his staff (who have mostly worked there for years ) will lose their job.

A sad day for everyone.

Oh dear. Such a worrying time. I'm having to make decisions like this from week to week, it's scary. Hope it comes good soon x

*sigh*

Makes for tough decisions, knowing whole lives are about to be changed by a single person's decision.... decisions they don't even want to make......

Oh, I feel for him and for all those people.....

It is so very sad, a lot of my friends are looking for work at the moment they are on 90 days notice and there are 500 of them, not all friends I might add....xx

What an awful situation for everybody. I don't envy the Manager one little bit. I'm glad your job is safe though...x

It's certainly a worrying time. We've seen three businesses close in as many weeks in our little town. Let's hope things pick up again soon

Such a shame that person was so selfish not to take a 4 day week. They must be confident they wont be the one to go.
