What winds people up is the obvious waste which occurs in many spheres of life mainly due to poor management of one sort or another.  Take the food industry (agriculture, production, wholesale and retail. )  the food wastage as a whole runs into millions of tons, possibly billions.

Governments changing/dropping schemes which have already had £millions spent on them, then the £millions to pay in compensation.

Councils waste thousands/millions on schemes which are then reversed because they were not effective.

Are those persons made redundant angry(sometimes), bloody right they are, and who would blame them  >:(

No, not been told that. We've only been doing it again for a few weeks. How much workload do you tend to get? Most nights we have virtually nothing and just fill up. Think we must be way over hours!

Yes, the staff from counters we currently have on nights were informed last night. Think it's just deli and pizza counter. They were totally shocked, no idea where they are going, just have to fill in availability form.

Basically if you're not offered a reasonable alternative then it should surely be a redundancy situation. Can't make you just change department and hours etc if you are not in agreement. If they are deciding to close the department then they may have to offer redundancy. There may be reasons why it's not suitable for you to work on other departments such as mobility or mental health issues etc. They have to offer you a reasonable alternative on similar hours, unless you are happy to change hours and role. Otherwise it's redundancy.

Losing the ability to maintain your product knowledge and/or skill level may also be unreasonable.

Are we expecting any more bakery changes in 2021? Just wondering if part bake bakeries have been a success since they changed over earlier in the year.

Part bakeries? Did that even actually happen in the end. They just shafted half the staff and carried on making the same stuff.

We lost two hours of production a day and 3 full time staff. Hoping we go part bake in the next 12 months. Senior team cant understand that we're 30% down on takings running on 2 people a day!
