Why is the company still obsessively scraping the barrel for pennies by getting rid of these things when we all know there is much much more to be saved if the knife cut just a bit higher up?

The knife Doesn’t seem long enough to reach Work level 3. Symbolic knife?
My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

The work level 3’s have protected themselves throughout this whole fiasco (pensions, restructure, salary review etc etc etc)  with the full support of Lewis’s little helpers sorry USDAW in stead of fighting fir it’s members rights the senior USDAW mangers are more interested in taking selfies with Lewis and Davie at (for example) the national event at the NEC

I was at the event where people started taking selfies with them two, I’ve never seen anything like the arse licking that went on that day, one could have been forgiven for throwing up it was awful and of course the bosses were loving being in the limelight.

I believe the work level 3's were still affected by the pension changes, although apparently they get a better deal. Everything else though is true, they have avoided the rest of the changes - can only be a matter of time as they are very expensive compared to Community Champions?

Taking selfies with executives is so ridiculous :D

Why have 8 GA's filling the shelves at xmas when you can have one store manager doing it?

Why were senior team on a 2day course at the beginning of the week. Rumour has it, it was to learn how to coach and work more closely with individuals in store. This suggests that they will have to deal with all the audits that stores get and therefore have to make sure all line managers know their role in being able to pass these audits. I am afraid to say it that this suggests the demise of the compliance role, so by mid January they will be gone along with the personnel managers. >:(

A lot of mixed rumours regarding the compliance manager trial not going well?

No, it suggests that senior team managers didn't know how to coach and work more closely with individuals in store. Because it's cheaper to do this than employ enough people to do the job in the first place. And people wonder how we're a mess.

That's if this is what the 'courses' entailed, I suspect there was more to it than that...

It was duplicated because I was asking 2 different people on 2 different pages!!
I’m trying to get information to see if it affects me!!

Ramjet I understand how you feel.
My husband has also been put on pills and taken on a 2nd job which he thinks he needs to do however not at the cost of his health.  We should all be going out on strike! No company that makes £1billion profit a year should be forcing redundancy on anyone.

Can someone explain if there is a cap on so-called parachute payments and what it is?

Personally, I would grab redundancy with both hands and run. Problem being that as I have got over 40 years servitude and only 2 years to go for long overdue parole(retirement) (-*-) It really wouldn't be cost effective to grant me my wish. One of my colleagues with much less indentured time will be put out of their misery instead >:( All to save a few quid to award themselves as a nice little earner. >:D
